Book ID: 80922

Explores many small outbuildings that can be found at obscure rural farmsteads throughout the Tidewater and greater mid-Atlantic, from Williamsburg and Annapolis, to Mount Vernon and Monticello. These structures were designed to perform a single task: cooking food; washing clothes; smoking meat; storing last winter's ice; keeping milk, cheese, and cream fresh.
