  • "The earliest house at Hyde Park burned down around the time of the American Revolution. A few years later, since none of the Balls wanted to live there, the family put up a small 'marooning cottage,' which the Ball ladies could use to maroon—that is, to get away from home to socialize—and men might use while hunting."
    —Edward Ball, Slaves in the Family (NY: Ballantine Books, 1998), 415
