This style originates in Barbados and is occasionally found in African-American communities on the coast. Examples are increasingly rare. This one is has been preserved and adapted for continued use, though not as a dwelling.

    This is beautiful, and so reminiscent of the Barbadian chattel houses I studied. I would love to see it in person, is there any chance you would share its location?

    I love your architectural photography work. The chattel-style houses are amazing. I live in Midway. Can you tell me where chattel house in the Freedman Grove Community is located? Thank you.
