The Fulton House museum opened June 4 with free weekly tours offered every Friday through Labor Day. The items pictured are a small sample of the display in the old kitchen of the Fulton House on loan from The Historical Society’s members this summer.

There are many items used back in an earlier era for cooking, preserving, baking, and food prep. There are crocks, cast- iron skillets, graters, a butter churn, a wooden rolling pin for rolling out cookie dough, jars and canners, just to name a few, as well as many other useful utensils that were used by our grandparents and great grandparents. Come and see how they used these items in their everyday homes.

In the Fulton House itself, there is also a needlework display. There are beautiful hand-crocheted items, such as doilies, handkerchief edgings, dresser scarves, table runners, a crocheted doll, Swedish embroidery, as well as regular embroidery, knitting, punch work, etc. There is even an oldtime wooden sewing box with its contents.

The museum is open every Friday 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. from June through Labor Day. In addition to the needlework and kitchen items, the regular Historical Society’s display is available for purchase of T-shirts, booklets, pamphlets, as well as items made in Fulton County.

Take a step back in history and come see the beautiful needlework and household utensils used and made in an earlier time by local ancestors.
