PROJECT SUMMARY

Stone & Lime Historic Restoration Services was awarded the contract for the structural stabilization of remnant chimneys at the Stafford Slave Settlement, including steel bracing; wood lintel replacement; historic tabby and fire brick masonry repair, repointing and replacement.

HISTORIC CONTEXT

In the early 19th Century, Robert Stafford established the Stafford Plantation after acquiring land from General Nathanael Greene. By 1830, Stafford controlled 1,360 acres with 148 slaves. After his death in 1877, Stafford’s heirs sold the property to Thomas and Lucy Carnegie. Today, all that remains is 24 tabby and fire chimney ruins; representing slave housing.
