Pemberton Hall Historic Trail

The apple trees you see here are a reminder that fruit orchards were an essential part of Chesapeake Bay plantation life in the 18th century. Apples, peaches, and pears were on the daily menu for plantation residents. The abundant fruit was also used to fatten livestock and was processed into cider and brandy for both local consumption and export. The orchard you see here has been recreated based on historical records showing the location and spacing of trees. The apples are heirloom varieties typical of those grown in the colonies in the 1700s.
