Some Information on Smokehouses

Record #:
The brick smokehouse built in 1847 behind the Attmore-Oliver House in New Bern has contributed to the interpretation of the house and social life history. People had a smokehouse because it was used to prepare ham, a resource which represented the peak of gentrified high status. Brick was used to reduce the incident of fire and also reduce stealing.
