This investigation was undertaken based on evidence from a 2010-2011 Phase-One survey that a building – possibly a slave quarter – may have stood in the North Garden east of the Center Walk. In March 2013, six test units were dug and features consistent with a possible dwelling were found in two of them. The features’ size, their apparent configuration, and recovered artifacts suggest it may have been a root cellar or sub-floor associated with a dwelling for enslaved workers or other servants.
