Enslaved men and women, such as Jerry, Mary, Willis, and Jake, were an integral part of the full story of Barrington.

Cooking a hot meal after a hard day of work was a daily routine and typically included their ration of cured pork and cornmeal supplemented with seasonal vegetables from their garden.

Come join us as we demonstrate cooking a traditional meal in the style of enslaved foodways using period ingredients and methods!
