Vinnie’s Cabin-Cartersville, Georgia

Behind a beauty salon in Cartersville sits a rare extant “urban” slave cabin. It was one of ten cabins that sat on the property of Elijiah and Cornelia Field.

After the Civil War, Vinnie Salters Johnson moved to Cartersville and cooked for the Fields family. She lived in this cabin with her son. It became the home of Vinnie Salters Johnson and her son, Cafaries Johnson.

The cabin was restored a few years ago after the roof and floor collapsed. The walls are original to the cabin.
