The Plummers' Kitchen @ Riversdale House Museum | | |

Stop by Riversdale to check out the open hearth, where the Kitchen Guild will be demoing recipes from the 1920s and celebrating the life of Nellie Arnold Plummer (1860-1933).

Nellie was born enslaved to Adam Francis Plummer of Riversdale and Emily Saunders Plummer, and grew up to work as a school teacher for forty-five years, as well as serve as a church elder. In 1927 she published the book, Out of the Depths, or the Triumph of the Cross, a biography of her family, much of which is based on her father’s writings.

Discover more about this remarkable woman and learn about popular dishes from Nellie’s time during the program!
