I sat in a rocker here the other day to eat what we had packed for lunch. An OK lunch, but the company was excellent.
This porch, as it is today, has seen our first president George Washington, several signers of the Declaration of Independence, famous authors, and our Poet Laureate Archibald Rutledge.
Not bad, but I bet they didn’t have a ‘ham and cheese hero’ for lunch.
The Hampton Plantation was built in 1735.
Wood never lasts very long marshes and wet weather. Except Cypress wood. It doesn’t burn well, insects dislike it, and the strength is like steel. We looked at all the original structure inside and even the original indigo dye used for paint is still intact.
