Knott House Kitchen




Although Luella Knott loved furnishing her house with pieces from the Victorian Era, when it came to the kitchen, she preferred it to be up to date. This is what her 1930's kitchen looked like. The electric refrigerator was quite a modern convenience for that time, since most people relied on ice boxes to keep their food from spoiling.

That's a marvelously old fashioned kitchen. The breadbox looks quite similar to one I've seen in a private home.

I've been curious about the kitchen ever since you started this series. I always love that room the most whenever we get to tour old homes. You learn so much about what it was like in the era. Yes, the electric frig was quite modern for the 30s. My husband remembers how exciting it was when his parents got their first electric refrigerator in the early 40s.

We look at rooms like this and think "old fashioned." It is a good reminder that some of these were very modern for the times.
