Ca. 1820 · Charlotte, Vermont · Moved to Museum: 1949

Smokehouses are small, airtight stone structures where meat was preserved. Traditionally, butchered cuts were salted and then hung in a smokehouse above a smoldering fire of corn cobs and hickory wood. Meats remained in place for several days, or sometimes weeks, to complete the curing process.
