“Charles Friend owned a plantation of 802 acres during the Civil War, a plantation that had 36 adult slaves in        1860 (PG Co. Personal Property Tax 1860). Unlike the homes of the vast majority of neighbors, the Friend dwelling survived the siege. However, $2000 of a total value of $3240 was deducted in 1865 for           destruction of buildings. The dwelling stood into the twentieth century; a photograph in the park archives in Petersburg shows a two-story frame house and suggests a two-room deep or "double pile" floor plan.”
