Description 2009 RC deWinter ~ All Rights Reserved ~~ The kitchen in the Isaac Stevens House, built in Wethersfield, Connecticut in 1789 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Stevens, a leatherworker of some success, had this house built with comfort in mind, although the rooms are not as elegant and spacious as some of its neighbors. This kitchen was designed to be run not by slaves or servants but by the women in the Stevens family. It also served as an office, where the family and leather business accounts were kept. A desk for this purpose sits against the wall behind he small table closest to the hearth, but is not visible in this painting. This is an authentic example of a middle-class kitchen of the times and is currently furnished in the style of the early 19th century.
