Locus A


Locus A is the stone-built cellar foundation of a moderate sized building. It consists of a main foundation with an exterior staircase on the northern wall, and a small addition on the southern wall. It is the north-eastern most planation building of Hughes Estate.
A wooden upper level would likely have rested on the foundation, with the stairway leading to a wooden veranda.
Locus A is tentatively identified as the residence (great house) of the owners of Hughes Estate.
