Plantation Hospital

During outbreaks of measles, malaria, dysentery, and other contagious illnesses, the hospital isolated the ill from healthy family members and friends. Physicians attending the plantation's white residents also provided health care for members of the slave community. Surgeries, tooth extractions, and assisting with difficult births were some of the services provided. Folk remedies and herbal treatments were also widely used within the slave community. The present building is a reconstruction of the hospital.
