    NEW! Mary Cowan Hall Cookbook


    Hot off the presses is the newly transcribed cookbook of Mary Cowan Hall and Henrietta Hall McNeely from 1859 to 1888.

    The original recipe book was in possession of Mary Francis Smith of Greensboro, NC. She was a friend of Mildred Seaber, the granddaughter of Dr. Josephus Hall.

    Mildred gave Mrs. Smith several items once belonging to the Hall Family. After speaking with Hall House docent, Barbara Upright, Mrs. Smith donated this cookbook in 2014. Volunteers led by Carol Rathbun spent hundreds of hours over two years transcribing the recipes. See the original cover to the right.
