Old kitchens hold memories, memorials

The kitchen is the heart of the home. This is as true today as it was 100 years ago. Back then, the kitchen was a separate little building that usually was built before the main house. It was connected by a small porch or walkway that we called the dogtrot. I guess we called it that because that is where the old hound dog trotted between the house and the kitchen, waiting for us to throw him a cold biscuit.
