Author(s): Brett C. Mogensen; James Davidson

Summary

From 1821 until its destruction by the Seminoles in 1836, Bulow Plantation (8FL7) in Flagler County, Florida represented one of the largest sugar producing operations in East Florida. Beyond being a site of production, the plantation was also home to roughly two hundred enslaved African-Americans during this period. In the 2014 field season, the University of Florida conducted excavations focusing on a single domestic slave cabin. Preliminary results of these excavations will be presented with particular attention paid to above and below-ground architecture. These results will also be compared to other plantation sites in East Florida.
