The African American Community

From the 18th-century community of enslaved people who lived in houses that likely resembled traditional houses in Africa, to the 19th-century community who lived in barracks and houses along the high ground, to the 20th-century African American community that developed along Ashley River Road, people of African descent have been an integral part of Drayton Hall’s history.
