Burlington in Alamance County, North Carolina — The American South (South Atlantic)
Glencoe - Two-Story Workers' Houses
These houses contain four to six rooms, for sometimes as many as ten or more family members. There were two rooms per floor, with a central hallway on the first floor. Originally, detached kitchens stood in the back yards - a typical Southern way to separate cooking heat and threat of fire. In the 20th century some kitchens were built as rear ells. There were privies in the back yards.
