It was gorgeous to see, but one of the first times I’ve ever visited a historical site and saw slave quarters. What was interesting though is that a slave who lived their in the mid 1860’s was big into plant grafting and breeding. He invented a type of pecan tree called a “papershell.”
The crazy thing is that we have a papershell tree in our back yard at our house in Texas! So our tree in some shape or form can trace it’s origin back to the plantation. Very wierd.
