Photos taken at the excellent "Slave Life at Ben Lomond Tour" on February 26, 2012.
The Prince William County Historic Preservation staff here were superb! I was really impressed with their level of knowledge about Northern Virginia slavery and the Civil War. Ben Lomond goes right up on my list of sites that I would recommend to a visit to.
The slave cabin is AN ORIGINAL. But, keep in mind the cabin is not in its original location, staff informed me that it was moved across the property at an earlier date (see visuals below).
