A Truly Authentic Kitchen

Located at the Appomattox Courthouse National Historic Park. It is interpreted to 1864.
Kitchens are often the most altered room in houses built before the 20th century. Changes in domestic technology and the use of household servants since the mid-19th century dramatically affected how meals are prepared for nearly everyone and who prepares them for middle- and upper-income households.

Only museums restore kitchens to their period appearances, like the one shown here. People living lives in the 21st century nearly always want the functionality and convenience of modern appliances. To live modern lives in historic houses requires finding a balance between historic character and 21st century functionality, especially in kitchens and bathrooms.
Finding that balance is explored in depth in Chapter 3 of “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.”
