“As in the case of many old houses, there is a puzzlement. On an upstairs hallway can be seen the original siding of the house, yet downstairs, below, on the other side of the hall is a very old room with a large fireplace, faced with brick complete with cooking crane and dutch oven. It would seem the downstairs room was a kitchen wing of one story and the rooms above it were added at a later date. Deduced from Helen Wilkinson Reynolds book “Dutchess County Doorways” (concerning Row House). “…two full stories in height, with a hall through the center, four rooms on each floor and a kitchen wing at the east”.”
