Sizes available: 1024×683 | 600×400

The fireplace in the Allen House in Alamance County, N.C., where John and Rachel Allen lived with their family in the late 1700s. On the floor of the fireplace, two andirons stand in the ashes holding a log. To the right of the andirons, a kettle hangs from a hook. Various cooking and fire-tending tools hang from the left and right walls of the fireplace, and lanterns sit on the mantel above. To the right of the fireplace, a straw broom leans against a wooden cupboard that holds clay dishes and jars.
