Smoke stain

posted by Todd

This week Andy and Rob are working on repainting the farmhouse kitchen. The entire house was restored in 2005 back to its 1920's glory. While we are a museum, we still use the artifacts and actually cook in the old wood stove for programs like the historic dinners and the school program Pastport. All that smoke from the wood stove has changed the color of the room over the years. Andy is actually rolling on the original paint color with the darker shade to the left being how much it has changed, kind of shocking. Tomorrow they will be putting on the last coat and we will be ready once again for the school tour invasion this spring.
