Black Builders in Antebellum North Carolina

Record #:
Throughout the history of North Carolina, from the initial colonization up to the present day, black artisans and craftsmen play an important role in creating the architecture of the state. Black slaves and freedmen worked in all the construction trades, even in creative and independent roles. Through their contribution to the state's architectural heritage some of the North Carolina's finest old structures were created.
