Modern Conveniences in the 1800’s with Gene Denu August 1

The invention timeline for household appliances stretches back to the early part of the 19th century. Prior to that date, things like central heating, hot water, garbage disposals, dishwashers, vacuums and light bulbs simply didn't exist. Cleaning had to be done by hand. Average homes were much smaller, and usually built around a fireplace that provided warmth in winter, hot water for baths and a place to cook. The inventors who created our modern conveniences transformed our way of life, making larger homes possible and freeing people from the daily chores that consumed large amounts of time. Gene highlights the evolution of this timeline.

Early presentations will be held at the community center on Lerner St. starting at 7:30 pm. As the season progresses we hope to hold the later programs in the Barn. Updates will be provided in the Granite State News and this website prior to the presentations.
