Otis House

How the Kitchen Worked

Unlike the other rooms in the Otis House, the kitchen has been not been restored.  Originally there was a large fire place for cooking, a beehive oven, a door to the garden, privy and well, and a large cupboard.  The kitchen was left unrestored so that we might see some of the evidence found in 1916, when the house was purchased and restored by William Sumner Appleton.
