Crosby House kitchen - Erie Canal Village

Crosby House kitchen  -  Erie Canal Village

A section of the kitchen at the Crosby House at the Erie Canal Village. Now a little bit of history: By 1840, kitchens had become larger. The additional space made it easier and more comfortable to cook. Some chores previously done outside could now be done inside a kitchen such as this. The kitchen is well equipped with a cookstove. These stoves had a reservoir for hot water on the side. The stove required wood year round, which was stored in a woodbox next to the stove. Also located in the kitchen was a washing machine made of wood with metal and powered by hand. This was one of the many improvements in clothes washing technology made after the Civil War. Earlier families had to wash clothes by hand, perhaps using a metal tub and wash board. There is a drop leaf county style kitchen table dated between 1840 - 1860. Notice the old iron and how they used the drop leaf table to iron the clothing on. The Erie Canal Village is located on Routes 46/49, just west of Rome, NY.



Kitchen table/island/worktable is last yr's unfinished DIY project. Cut a few inches off legs of $30 1960's library table and added industrial wheels. Added 2 shelves under table for storage. Table is 3 inches high to function as dining table and to keep low open lines in open plan room. Sanded and stained Dark Walnut. Designed and added 10 inch drop down leaf with piano hinge and drop down hinges. Unfinished: drop-leaf still needs to be stained. I love this table when I see it empty and ready for any activity.
