Long Description:
Marker text:

William Deery built this kitchen about 1810 to serve his inn. Virginia Caldwell described it as "tumble-down" in 1940 before the west and north walls were reconstructed. It served as her weave house. It is now furnished as an early 1800's kitchen.

From the NRHP/NPS form 10-900 OMB No. 1024-0018:

"The first orginial building is the circa 1810 brick kitchen, a single room building with a wood-shake side-gable roof, Flemish bond brickwork, and a continuous stone foundation. There is an exterior end brick chimney. The kitchen has a central wood entrance flanked by two six-over-six double-hung wood sash windows. The west and north walls were rebuilt in 1940."
