Village of Rome Cookhouse and Barracks at Whitesbog

1930s Era ---- Gone!

The barracks style buildings had a center hall with five rooms on the right and left both downstairs and upstairs. Each room had a small window and several built in bunks. The building was heated with a single wood burning stove.

The small building on the right contained a stove for cooking on rainy days when cranberries were not picked in the bogs. Normally dinner was cooked over camp fires. There were three cookhouses and six barrack style buildings in the Village of Rome.
