Lucas Cabin

The home of William Lucas which was located a short distance away from Cleydael. After being rebuffed by Dr. Stuart, Booth and Herold evicted the Lucases, a family of free blacks, from their own house. The next day, the fugitives paid William Lucas’ son, Charley, twenty dollars to take them to Port Conway by wagon. The Lucas cabin no longer stands.
