Kitchen view to South
The house was very modern for it's day. Notice the builtin Ironing Board on the south wall of the kitchen. Did you notice the churn to make butter? The Amish families still use this type because of the delightful flavored butter it creates. The open door give you a view of Mr. Parkers desk in the room to the south. This was used to do bookkeeping and letter writing.

Many a house wife would like to cook on this gas burning cook stove. The Parkers were very modern having their own propane supply for fuel to use to cook and to heat the house.
