Here’s another look at the grand, old, decaying farmhouse in Southampton County that we reflected upon in our last post.  Read more here.

The complex is in Southampton County, which is known in history as the place where slave Nat Turner led a rebellion in 1831.  More information is here.  Today, 18,409 people live in Southampton County; three in five are white; most of the rest are black.  Poverty is about 16 percent.
