Remembering the Tenant Farmers: A comparison of two late 19th-century tenant farm dwellings in Maryland.
Author(s): Sarah N. Janesko
This paper compares two late nineteenth-to early twentieth-century African American tenant farm sites located on the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC) campus in Edgewater, Maryland. I used historical population and agricultural census data to provide context for initial field findings, and used these contextualized findings to formulate questions about changing social and agricultural practices after emancipation.
