Cette armoire, construite en 1806 par le loyaliste Hendrick Ruiter, a été offerte à sa fille Katherine en cadeau de mariage. Selon la légende, durant la nuit de son mariage à David Heath, Katie se cacha dans l’armoire pour éviter de se soumettre à la coutume d’être escortée à la chambre par des invités tapageurs!

Col. Hendrick Ruiter, a Loyalist, made this cupboard in 1806 as a wedding present for his daughter Katherine. Legend has it that on the night of her wedding to David Heath, Katie hid in the cupboard to avoid being subjected to the custom of being escorted to the bedroom by rowdy guests!
