Hetzel Summer Kitchen
Peter Hetzel, his wife Catherine and their five children lived in the small, white, wooden frame building before you for about a year while their large farmhouse was being built.
Peter Hetzel was a carpenter and manufactured fanning mills, hand-looms and furniture. He was also a co-founder of Zion Memorial Church on South Dixie Drive in Moraine, Ohio.
Summer kitchens were used to keep the heat out of the main house during hot weather. Pots were suspended from the crane for cooking and heating water. The bake oven was used to make breads, pies and other baked goods.
Built in 1817 near West Stroop Road and Dogwood Trail in Van Buren Township,
now the City of Kettering.
