The Essex

The Essex

Away from the few growing urban centers, such as Boston, the hearth was the center of the home during the period after the American revolution. The kitchen of a farmhouse also served as the family room, dining room, and living room, as well as a place to sleep. The detail of the moldings of the Essex is subdued. The panels can be either raised or flat. A door appears to the side of the firebox to conceal a bee hive oven or a woodbox. It can also be a built-in cabinet to house and display a collection.
