“both a survivor & a reminder of another time”
A white-columned brick building constructed between 1831 and 1834, the Shadows is both a survivor and a reminder of another time. The Shadows serves as a solid reminder of the many layers of history associated with the site, each succeeding generation building on the one before to become an integral part of the property’s history. Fortunately, we not only have the house and the historic site, but we also have the Weeks Family Papers, a collection of over 17,000 invoices, receipts, business, legal, and personal letters that testify to the joys, sorrows, fears, sickness, celebrations, pain, prosperity and poverty, all the emotions and situations of life. The site has been the stage for business entrepreneurs, politicians, soldiers, a backdrop for the Civil War, and a comfortable, familiar setting for childhood and old age, witnessing birth, sickness, and death, all of which are documented in the Weeks Family Papers. c.1834 Sugar Plantation served as the Home of four generations of the Weeks Family. $10 Adults$8 Seniors$6.50 StudentsFree Friends of Shadows and National Trust MembersTours Begin Every 15 Min Past the Hour
