The two slave cabins seen here and below are all that remain of the historic Gascoigne Bluff plantation of Scottish immigrant James Hamilton. Hamilton’s vast acreage of long staple Sea Island cotton was labor intensive and therefore he was a large slaveholder. The inclusion of windows and doors suggest that the slaves who lived here were higher in the privilege hierarchy of the plantation.
I’m unsure when the stucco was added but the Cassina Garden Club of St. Simons began meeting here in 1932 and took deed to the property in 1950. They maintain the structures and the grounds beautifully.
Seen below is the larger old style tabby used in the slave cabins.
