Axtell Antiques and The Rookery Bookery
In 1968 the House of Axtell Antiques, also known as The Rookery, was born. This lovingly restored inn now houses some of the best examples of early Americana with emphasis on scarcity, unusual form, and superlative, untouched condition of the museum-quality offerings: baskets, stoneware, treenware, redware, and folk art, iron hearth accessories, country furniture, textiles, art work, glassware, and early lighting devices.
In 2012 The Rookery Bookery was established as an adjunct to The House of Axtell Antiques. Featured at this bookery are hundreds of books, periodicals, catalogues, and paper ephemera.
