Haleigh Jacquot Photo Essay: Kingsley Plantation
Haleigh Jacquot brings us a photo essay about the architectural detailing of the Kingsley Plantation. Through attention to detail she brings a little focus on the building techniques employed in a bizarre era of Jacksonville history. Kingsley Plantation is an ongoing archaeology revelation, as digs and explorations are still uncovering the strange narrative of the location. Most people know the celebrated, African American owned Plantation from the legends of Anna Kingsley, the mistress of the plantation---a Senegalese princess sold into slavery to her future husband, Zephaniah Kingsley, but the site was also an important part of the general wars surrounding the War of 1812. Join us after the jump for engrossing details!
