This interactive image analyzes "The Painting of Edge Hill". Learning about the aspects and structures of a plantation is crucial to understanding the lives of enslaved families and their enslavers. Our project explores the Edge Hill plantation, specifically the main house, the kitchen, the horse barn, the creek, the overseer's cabin, and the families who resided at Edge Hill. We describe these structures in the context of their uses at the Edge Hill property as well as in the greater sense of plantation owners in North Carolina in the 19th century.
