Slave Quarters

Green Hill Farm
Philadelphia Road
North East, MD 21901

Green Hill Farm was built around 1780 by Thomas Russell. A number of slave houses once stood on the property - one of which remains. A vivid reminder that you are in the South.

The farm is private property, however, the slave house can be seen from the road.
