Focus Weekend- Cooking at the Quarters Barrington Plantation State Historic Site

February 7 @ 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

  1. Feb. 6th & 7th:
    Enslaved men and women at Barrington, 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! Contact Ben Baumgartner for more information at 936-878-2214 x248.
