And from the kitchen down the hall to my very favorite room...

Looking down the hall... 

past the front door

Into the very original 1800 keeping room.

The heart of the home, the hearth, to the left is a cupboard under the stairs, to the right is a bake oven and a storage place for wood, the little door above is the original salt box - it opens into the cold cellar - it would have been the driest spot in the house. 

Peeking into the hearth, original crane and some tools, the cauldron has gone "missing", there will be a dutch oven simmering stew here by September.  Mark my words, a meal in the hearth will be our housewarming.
