The Isaac Davis Smokehouse

1994
The Isaac Davis Smokehouse resides on the Berea College Campus. It is said to have been built ca. 1850, possibly as a corn crib. In the late 1800s the Davis Family used it as a smokehouse. Around 1900 Isaac Davis converted it into a broommaking workshop. In 1972 Berea College students moved on campus log by log and reshingled the roof.
1933 or 34,
photographed by Doris Ulmann.

The smokehouse is seen here while in use by Davis as a broommaking workshop. Doris Ulmann photographed it while visiting the Berea area.
