The Society uses the Meeting Room as our main meeting area. We meet on the third Wednesday of the month in the Spring and Fall; with special events in Summer. Meetings are open to the public.

The shallow working fireplace is one of three on this floor set triangularly back-to-back. There is a huge stone base in the cellar that supports these fireplaces. The three flues come together in a common chimney, part of which you will be able to see in an upstairs bedroom. The fireplace had been partially destroyed when this house was converted into two apartments; the Society had it rebuilt as part of the restoration of the house. The mantel was salvaged from an old house near Pine Bush that was being demolished.

The copper kettle, a gift from Mr. Joseph Trickett, one of the founding members, is hanging on a cooking crane. The crane and andirons are early 18th century fireplace equipment.
