Revolutionary War style

Merriam Last flits around the long, dark smoky kitchen in Revolutionary War bonnet and big rustling dress, clucking over guests at her table like a mother hen tending a brood. Cast iron utensils clank as a bountiful breakfast is laid out on china, pewter and silverware that could have just left a cupboard in old Williamsburg. Handsome brickwork of the massive fireplace, creaky wide-planked floors and an array of yesteryear's utensils hanging from ceiling beams envelop guests, making them feel as though they're dining with Paul Revere.
