Grandma's Kitchen

GRANDMA'S KITCHEN !

A full kitchen with a porcelain stove and an original "ice box" which got its cooling
power from ice harvested from Conesus Lake. Can't you just smell the home-made bread and taste the ginger cookies?

 

OUR MISSION is to create an educational opportunity for the youth of today and tomorrow to better understand and appreciate the
roots of our local history.
