The girls had a fun time running around the circular porch while I snuck inside for a closer look. The sitting room was full of historical photos and glass cases containing the remnants of broken dishware and other household objects found at the building's original location. It was mildly interesting, but the kitchen was the place that the curators had fun. There were several period appliances and a number of Victorian era kitchen tools. I loved looking at these objects and wondering what it would have been like to use them on a daily basis. I must admit that I'm grateful I will never really have to do cook this way.
