Windows on the side of an abandoned summer kitchen that is propped up on blocks in the snow like a hillbilly shack.


Summer Kitchen on Winters Road #3

This is a summer kitchen, a small building built behind a farmhouse to allow cooking in the summer without heating up the main house.

It is a tiny building with two rooms and three doors, one on each end and one on the side. It sits on stone blocks like an old hillbilly shack and has a tin roof. It is on Winters Road, west of Branstrator Road, in rural southwest Allen County, Indiana.

The old man who owns the land said that it was moved there in 1924 from the place down the street where it was built in the 19th century. The house that it once stood behind is long gone; and the summer kitchen likely will be demolished too before long, as it is in bad condition and has been attacked by vandals several times recently.

I have photographed this building in southwest Allen County many times over the years. Check out the next photograph of the summer kitchen on Winters Road.


Update: I drove down Winters Road at the beginning of September, 2012 and discovered that the 120 year old Summer Kitchen had been demolished.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
