Exterior of the Susquehanna House at its Original Site, Dameron, Maryland, February 27, 1942

Summary

Susquehanna Plantation, home to the Carroll family, was one of the largest, most productive farms in southern Maryland during the 1800s. Its success was made possible through the labor of 65 enslaved African Americans. The plantation house, seen here at its original site, was a common form in the Tidewater Maryland region--one room deep with long front and back porches designed for ventilation.
