Old Kitchen


Room names where servant bell pull system once operated

“Past the Housekeeper’s Sitting Room [Student Development Office], was the kitchen [Pearson Room]. Mrs. Thornton recalled that she has a large plate rack in her own home which used to stand in the kitchen. There was a door (now gone) which led to the scullery. The fireplace remains, but the cooking range of course has gone.”
