      EVENT DETAILS
      The Plummers' Kitchen

      Stop by Riversdale to check out the open hearth, where the Kitchen Guild will be demoing recipes from the 1920s and celebrating the life of Nellie Arnold Plummer (1860-1933).

      Nellie was born enslaved to Adam Francis Plummer of Riversdale and Emily Saunders Plummer, and grew up to work as a school teacher for forty-five years, as well as serve as a church elder. In 1927 she published the book, Out of the Depths, or the Triumph of the Cross, a biography of her family, much of which is based on her father's writings.

      Discover more about this remarkable woman and learn about popular dishes from Nellie's time during the program!
