Description: Cabin, Quarter, Plantation: Architecture and Landscapes of North American Slavery
William Chapman identifies and analyzes a change in the quality and style of slave housing in the Caribbean. Chapman finds that beginning in the late eighteenth century, enslavers began to replace slave houses built of wattle-and-daub with those built of stone. Moreover, the new stone houses were articulated with classical details, which were derived most likely from English pattern books.
