Ransom and Martha Hunt were well-to-do farmers, with over 8,000 acres of land. They lived in this cabin (built by slaves in 1835) with their 12 children near Seneca, South Carolina.

19th century life in the South Carolina Piedmont was characterized by hard work and a simple lifestyle.

Many Upcountry settlers were of Scots-Irish background and their adherence to frugal living and lack of adornment contrasted with their Lowcountry neighbors who summered here.

Visit Ashtabula or Woodburn Plantation in nearby Pendleton to see the difference in lifestyles.

This cabin was moved here in the mid 1960s.
