A cabin that housed enslaved people starting in the 1853 was restored and installed in the National Museum of African-American History and Culture -- and on Tuesday a woman who was born there saw her former home in a museum exhibit.
Isabell Meggett Lucas, 87, was amazed to see the two-room wood house where her family of 11 had lived on Edisto Island, South Carolina.
“I never knew this all would come to pass,” she said. “Everybody is excited and happy.”
