    How does YOUR kitchen compare?

    Do you recognzie any design elements in this kitchen? As the 20th century progressed, people needed to do more work in the home  without the help of domestic employees. This federal kitchen design is  reminiscent of America's Test Kitchen! Now think of your Shaker Heights kitchen. How does it compare to this 1949 design? Is it small with a separate butler's pantry? Does it have a laundry chute or a fold down ironing board? Do you still have a servant's call box? Please share photos with us! All of this and more in the Shaker Historical Museum's next exhibit - Above Stairs: Domestic Service in Shaker Heights.
