General Note/Comment

  • Seventeen black and white slides. Kingsley Plantation, originally built in the early 1800s by John McQueen, was a Spanish Florida cotton and indigo plantation run by Zephaniah and Anna Kingsley from the 1810s through the 1830s. It contains the only surviving tabby slave quarters. Tabby was a concrete-like substance made from oyster and lime. The plantation was a state park at the time of the images. (In 1989, the property was transferred to the National Park Service.) These images demonstrate the architecture and material culture of the plantation, as well the interpretation of the site by the Florida Park Service (FPS) through their interpretive signs. Images include the plantation, its kitchen building, barn, and a close-up of tabby. Also includes two images of FPS park signs.
