Indoor Plumbing

The owner shared "when the cistern on the second floor was full, there was enough force to provide the bathroom on the second floor of the house with running water".  
Beautifully maintained history.

First Hand Account

It seems like it's been 100 years since we heard rumors of the possibility of having access to these journals.  A much anticipated collection of daily life in Talbot County.  But ... the wait was well worth it.  Thanks to Jim Dawson, the Willis family and everyone else involved in putting this wonderful history lesson in print.  There is something to be learned by everyone.
You can find this 550+ page book at the Newscenter in Easton and I'm sure at Jim's store - Unicorn Bookshop in Trappe.  The best part - it's only $30 !!
