For nearly 100 years before the Civil War, Ben Lomond was home to an enslaved
African– American community. These enslaved workers grew tobacco, corn, and wheat
and raised hundreds of sheep, making the plantation prosperous for the Chinns and later
the Pringles. Guests will step into the past and discover the daily life skills of enslaved
workers. Costumed historians will demonstrate slave life, customs, and cooking.
Tours will begin at 11 a.m. and leave on the hour, with the last tour beginning at
