Community Kitchen
It is believed that the Harmonists used this kitchen to prepare communal meals on feast days which occurred only a few times a year. The unusual roof contains trap doors that open and allow steam to escape from cooking cauldrons. A second raised roof keeps out rain and snow. Building #14 on the printable site map.
