Hulberts Cabin And The Milk House
In the backyard are several structures that have stood the test of time. Among the more prominent ones are Hulbert’s cabin and the Milk House. There are also a small chicken house, bridge, and root cellar still extant.
The one room cabin is entered through a doorway in the west elevation. Mrs. Rose Hoffman who cooked for the Barrys in 1916-17 was able to recall many years later the furnishings within the cabin. These included three single iron bedsteads, a dresser, heating stove, and a washstand. Scattered about the room were also several chairs
Inside there were shelves against the north wall, in a corner was a table for straining milk. On the opposite, south wall were shelves. Water was piped into this structure and used for cooling jars of milk or cream, crocks of butter and lard, while sides of bacon and ham hung from the roof.
