Latta Planation house

Side view of the house at Latta plantation. In this image, you can see the outbuildings on the Latta plantation used for storage and often for cooking. The Latta family, while successful, were never rich, and their home is representative of the types of homes prosperous families lived in during the antebellum period. There were few families that could afford to build homes on the scale of Orton or Stagville.
