The cottage has two rooms, a parlor and a bedroom. Since there was no electricity at this time, I installed some spot lights behind a board to highlight areas of the rooms.
The cottage is raised on brick piers, a necessity in a city that is prone to flooding. The ground is covered with oyster shells in an effort to control the mud. Oyster shells were a cheap fill material. Note the moss on the slate roof. (Thank you, Tracy. )
