Hewn Timber Cabins

Two cabins (c. 1836) built by African-Americans to house African-American slaves who were brought to this area to raise cotton remain on the campus of Francis Marion University. The quality of the woodcraft, especially the full-dovetailed corners, shows that the builders were skilled craftsmen who took great pride in their work. The cabins are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The hewn timber cabins are open and available to the general public from 10:30 AM to 2:30 PM on the second Tuesday of each month from March through November, weather permitting. If you visit the site when the cabins are not open, signs outside each cabin provide visitors with a wealth of information and pictures. Photos show the cabin interiors and artifacts, many of which have been donated by families who lived in the cabins.
