Long Description:
Tobacco Barn-Tudor Hall Plantation-Pamplin Historical Park--Nineteenth-century farmers cut tobacco plants and placed them on sticks to be cured in tobacco barns like this one. Curing, a four-week process, preserves plants by removing moisture, and brings out the aroma and flavor. Farmers in Dinwiddie County grew a dark-leaf tobacco called Oronoco, which they cured using small fires built on the floor of enclosed tobacco barns. Its high nicotine and low sugar content made Oronoco ideal for pipes, chew, and snuff.
