This shop is modeled after an 1880 Prescott shop. Carpenters were in demand for the construction of counters, display cases, and furniture repair as well as new buildings. Often a carpenter was also a cabinet maker, in which case he made furniture – bedsteads, wash stands, tables, chairs, etc. The tools exhibited in the Carpenter Shop are not from the original shop but have been donated by people from all over the country.
Carpenter shops were usually surrounded by large lumber yards.
