About Us

The dining room, another room that was reserved for infrequent use, shows the small scale of furniture appropriate to small-scale dwellings.

Of special interest are the wainscoting and floor cloth sample which were carefully preserved by the Rowe House Committee.

Careful scrutiny of the fireplace, aided by oral tradition, helps the visitor understand why it is believed that this room with its southern exposure and clear view of Pine Grove Cemetery was probably designated by Benjamin Rowe as the house's original kitchen.
