During the War years (1941-1945) while members of the armed services were battling overseas.  Americans turned their old pots and their cooking oil for the war effort. Sugarless cakes and meatless meals became normal. Women shortened their skirts and men narrowed their lapels. They darkened their houses and planted Victory Gardens. Consumers during WWII gracefully submitted to the discipline needed to help in a time of national emergency. Five rooms of the nine-room house are open for visitors to see evidence of a time when the country was a war and were found in every activity and place.
