A Water Connection
Pemberton Park Historic Trail
You can still see the remnants of the old rolling road that led to the wharf at Mulberry Landing. Large barrels, called "hogsheads," filled with plantation goods were rolled along the road to the wharf where they were transferred to flat-bottomed scows, then loaded aboard ships bound for the Chesapeake and the Atlantic.
