Site Cluster 3: St. Leonard Creek Area

The final locus of sites, in St. Leonard, Maryland, is not so much a look at a neighborhood of planters or tenants as much as it is an examination of the internal community within one plantation over time. Archaeological excavations at Jefferson Patterson Park and Museum focusing on the King’s Reach and Smith’s St. Leonard sites have exposed two plantation centers that were both built and inhabited by the wealthy Protestant planter, Richard Smith, Jr., and his family, servants, and slaves. (King 1999). [16]
