Why are there wooden/log houses in the woods in South Carolina?

I m sure it s not specific to South Carolina, but I ve lived in SC my whole life and I noticed when riding backroads that often if you look into the woods, you ll see rundown wooden shacks/houses. Growing up, my dad said that these houses were slave houses, but I wasn t sure if that was accurate or just an assumption. Anyone have an answer?

    probably, you should have seen the houses I seen when I took a bus from Ft.Polk

    to Ft. Leonard in the 70's, sway back porches with coca-cola cases on front porch like it was waiting to be filmed for a movie, that was in Louisiana...were black folk there too....

    coulda been slave quarters, but have no way of knowing....

    They're not houses - they're actually Loghouse plants. This tree-like species, native to North and South Carolina, just happens to resemble wooden huts or houses. Hope this helped.
