Carpenters Were In High Demand

During the gold-rush buildings were erected 'any old how' but once a town began to settle down carpenters were in demand to build more 'substantial'  shops , hotels and houses suitable for raising families. Unless people brought furniture with them they relied on local cabinetmakers to provide beds, chairs, tables and dressers for their homes.

Our carpenters shop features a cabinetmakers bench, tools, lathe from the early 1900s along with examples of the kind of furniture that was for sale at the turn of the century.
