Houses of Hog Hammock

The houses shown here are various examples of traditional African-American vernacular architecture. Once common throughout the Southeast, they are quite rare today. They are generally adaptations of extant forms common on the mainland. They are identified elsewhere on the website, thanks to identifications provided by Cornelia Bailey. They are shown as a record of a vanishing way of life, threatened by outsiders, changes in ownership, and outrageous property tax increases in recent years.
