The Kitchen

The building called the Kitchen was not originally on Joel Lane’s plantation in the 18th century. Built about 1790, it was located on the Ray farm in northern Wake County and was moved to its current site in 1979. It was actually a middle-class dwelling that housed an entire family. It is similar in design to a colonial kitchen and is so interpreted today.


What visitors say

Thank you for guiding us through the Joel Lane House. It was very interesting and fun. There was a door in the kitchen. What was it for? I wish we had more time. Thank you once again.
