Introduction

The interpretation portion of the Slave House Database includes descriptions of the slave house and the activities that took place there from the actual enslaved people living there during slave times. The slave narratives breathe life into the two-dimensional drawings and photographs of slave houses. Undertaking the inclusion of the anthropological history of the inhabitants along with the preservation of the historic slave house is important because it reveals a part of history that cannot be gleaned from the historical record, alone.
