Coal room in the basement of the Korns farmhouse, Southampton Township, Somerset County.

"Coal Bin" in the basement of the Korns family farmhouse

This 2008 photo shows the coal storage room in a basement wall of the now-uninhabited 19th century Southampton Township, Somerset County family farmhouse that belonged to Daniel Korns, Jr., then to John Wilson Korns, then to Allen Korns. Coal was loaded into the room through the window. The coal was used to fire the furnace that heated the house. According to my Aunt Dolores, this area was called the "coal bin".
