Slave Dwelling Project

| November 28, 2012

Joe McGill of the National Trust for Historic Preservation created the Slave Dwelling Project to preserve and interpret structures that once housed enslaved blacks. On Oct. 7, McGill spent the night in the Sweet Briar College 19th-century slave cabin along with eight other individuals, including Crystal Rosson. Rosson is the great-granddaughter of Sterling Jones Sr., the last person to live in the cabin.
