Kitchen

The spacious kitchen, or butler’s pantry, is where all of the family meals were prepared. The Scotts secured their valuable silver in a built-in safe. Adjoining the dining room and conservatory, the butler’s pantry was in close proximity to the servants’ quarters and was connected to another kitchen used by the servants.

In 2002, the kitchen was renovated with state-of-the-art appliances for caterers to use during public events. VCU Foundation trustee and alumnus V. Max Beard purchased and generously donated them to VCU.
