Description

Exterior view of the Palmer House Kitchen taken by F.S. Lincoln in 1935. The one and a half story structure with a large chimney is a typical form for a colonial kitchen. It stands behind the main house, built by lawyer John Palmer, and provided a freestanding building for cooks to work in. This allowed the home to stay cooler during summer months and helped to prevent fires from spreading beyond the outbuilding.
