This is the kitchen building on the Chief Vann House site, circa 1804--obviously they have redone the foundation and some of the brickwork to make it safe for modern occupation--even just for touring.
(as always, click on any of the pictures to see them in close up detail-then just hit the "back" arrow to come back here)
Look at the size of those timbers!
Somehow the bricked area behind the mannequin must have vented into the chimney--there is a smaller fire box and some grating on top for cook pots--an early 'built in" stove top!
Slightly wider shot
Drinking gourd, hanging handily behind the door
I somehow failed the get pictures of the rest of the "front room"--the ladies were passing out home churned butter and crackers, I think I got distracted by my chewing (!) and unfortunately, the pictures from upstairs turned out blurry.
Linking this to Vintage Thingie Thursday at Coloradolady
See pictures of the dining room in the main house for Tablescape Thursday on my other blog, A Virtuous Woman.
Until next time....
