Shirley Plantation--page 2 of two pages

1723-38




Brick details

 
The dependencies for the plantation are arranged in a forecourt on the land side of the main building. These include two two-storied gabled houses (a kitchen and house for the overseer) and two one and a half story L-shaped storage barns which complete the Queen Anne courtyard. (Contrast the arrangement of the dependencies at Monticello.)
