Tudor Hall PlantationThe design of this building is typical of slave quarters built on Virginia plantations during the 1840s and 1850s. Each side provided space for one slave family, with a room downstairs for living and working and a loft for sleeping. The right side served as the plantation kitchen. Antebellum plantations (those built before the Civil War) usually had detached kitchens to keep the heat and odors of cooking from the main house. The other side was used for washing, spinning and weaving. This building is a reproduction of an original structure that still stands behind the Banks House. You may visit this structure today.
