Room 12 – Borrego Kitchen

Room 12

This early 1900’s kitchen exhibit is lovingly dedicated to Donald Borrego by his wife Angie. In this kitchen you will see how the pioneer families lived without electricity and running water, and the use of a wood stove to heat and cook with in their homes. The hefty “ice box” will tell the story of how they kept their food cold. The old wooden washing machine with homemade lye soap will make you appreciate the convenience of the modern-day washing machine. Butter churns and other hand-held kitchen tools are on display for a fun game of guessing what they were used for. The shelves are lined with old spice containers, cook books, and will leave you with a flood of memories of home-made cooking at its best.
