History of the Ben Lomond home
Benjamin Tasker Chinn (grandson) inherited the land. Within two years Chinn built a grand two-story Federal style home, along with a dairy, kitchen, smokehouse and slave quarters. After Chinn married Edmonia Randolph Carter, his new wife renamed their plantation “Ben Lomond”. Eventually the Chinns moved to another home and rented out Ben Lomond to a family named the Pringles.
