side roads


Well-known member

Have I got on a side road. One of the old houses i guide at, ask me to do a paper on slaves at the site and in the area. Thinking this is going to be snap I said sure. I am now back to 1500 when the Spanish tried to set up a colony, with 100 slaves most ran to the indians. The Spanish picked a swamp to build in. After four more attemps, 1720 they got a town. The plantion was a land grant given in 1729. The 1st house built 1730"s/1740's burned down in 1849. The 2nd house, which guide at, was built in 1850. I have found slaves indian and african were on site from the 1730's.
