Twickenham Receipts and Sketches

Twickenham Receipts and Sketches is a cookbook that was published by the Twickenham Historic Preservation District Association in 1978. In addition to hundreds of recipes, it contains drawings of Twickenham houses and scenes by local artists such as Lee Harless, L. Trice Hinds and Albert Lane, as well as descriptions of the houses.

Twickenham Receipts and Sketches

Lee Harless has captured the spirit of Adams Street in his 1977 sketch of three harmonious but dissimilar homes, the Yeatman-Beck home (ca. 1825), the Van Dyke home (ca. 1895) and the Certain-Lacy home (ca. 1923).

About the Yeatman-Beck home:

I remember a dance Willis Harris gave when we were teenagers. A lamp got knocked off by someone leaning against an old table. Willis nonchalantly said, "Good. I never liked that lamp." A good host and the best dancer in Huntsville.
