St. Simons Island Hamilton Plantation

St Simons Island Hamilton Plantation

December 3

Hamilton Plantation
Located on St. Simons Island, the remains of this antebellum plantation contain two surviving slave cabins, originally a set of four built before 1833. Among the better surviving slave cabins in the South, they are made of tabby, a cement consisting of lime, water, and crushed oyster shells. The cabins have built-in windows and a central chimney. James Hamilton Couper, namesake of the owner and manager of the plantation, was an architect and a builder. He designed and built the cabins to house the slaves who served in the plantation's main house. Utilizing a duplex plan to house more than one family, the cabins were originally part of a planned community of slave dwellings.

Bake Sale

The club's bake sale at the slave cabins will begin at 10 a.m. and end at 3 p.m. The tour will run from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.
