Who made furniture in the early frontier days of Newburgh?  Not a furniture store!!  Manufactured furniture was scarce. Many families made their own tables, chairs and beds.  Featured is the handmade Kuebler family cradle where many a Kuebler baby ‘rocked the cradle’ and the toddler sized rocking chair made just right for the youngest daughter of Thomas Bethell.
