GRAND HAVEN, Mich. -- Local historian Nancy Buchanan will present a look at the foundation of the home (the kitchen) in 1914 as Loutit District Library’s centennial series continues on Thursday, March 6.

Buchanan will present hands-on items, like kitchen gadgets and cleaning tools, along with a PowerPoint slideshow featuring such household items as wringer washers and wood/gas cook stoves.

In addition, Nancy will cover new-fangled items of the time, affordable only to the wealthy. She will share those as well as items used by average Grand Haven households.

Buchanan will conclude with a discussion on common foods mom would have made in 1914.

This program is free to the public and held the LDL's Program Room A at 7 p.m. For more information, visit www.loutitlibrary.org or call (616) 842-5560, ext. 214.
