The Enslaved at Locust Grove

Overview

Locust Grove is committed to telling the stories and interpreting the lives of the enslaved men, women, and children who lived and worked at Locust Grove. Locust Grove was the home and workplace of dozens of enslaved African Americans during the Croghans’ residency from 1790 to 1849. Some were born here, and others were purchased and brought here to do the work of building the house and outbuildings, planting and harvesting the crops, digging the gardens, preserving and cooking the meals, stitching the clothes, washing the laundry, watching the children, and other tasks. At the peak of the farm’s operations in 1820, more than 40 enslaved people labored here.
