Locus E

Drone Footage of Locus E

Locus E is an L shaped building of three large rooms and one small room. It is the most centrally located building at Hughes Estate.

From this structure all aspects of the plantation are in view. This building could have been a home of the plantation owners, or it could have been the residence of the plantation manager, as Locus E is located between areas in which  enslaved people labored (the sugar works, animal pens, and cistern/kitchen), and as such strategically located for surveillance. 

Artifacts excavated in this locus date from the mid/late 18th century to the early 19th century and are typical of household refuse.
