On Monday, November 9, Museum Director, Tara Howanice, and Jefferson Historical Society President, Christine Williams, had the pleasure of accepting a donation of 75 cookbooks titled Recipes from Miss Elizabeth’s Kitchen.
The cookbook is the product of Girl Scout Silver Award recipient Phaedra Scholte’s two year research into the Chamberlain family and recipes of that period.
Thanks to Phaedra and her mom Linda for such a wonderful donation. Thanks to Carol Keppel who began this project and to Tara Howanice who brought it to fruition. The cookbook will be sold in Miss Elizabeth’s Shoppe with proceeds going to the Jefferson Township Historical Society scholarship fund.
