(12) Proctor Smoke House

This remarkable full-dovetailed log plank smokehouse exemplifies the importance of outbuildings in the successful operation of farms. Smokehouses were the focus of all meat curing and storing activities, supplemented by barns and cribs for keeping other food items safely. Built in the Bear Swamp area of Perquimans County during the early 19th century, the Proctor Smokehouse was moved to the Newbold-White House in the 1970s and to the museum in 2003.
