Port Gibson in Claiborne County, Mississippi — The American South (East South Central)
An outbuilding in size and architectural detail to this one was constructed by Samuel Gibson, apparently at the same time as his residence circa 1805. The original dependency was probably used as a plantation office, school or weaving room. Since there was no evidence of a fireplace, the dependency probably never functioned as a kitchen.
