Doon-ThomasWatsonHouse-0001-paintingbyPhoebeWatson.jpg

The house was constructed in 1835 by industrialist Adam Ferrie who designed a Scottish Gothic Style. Homer took possession of the house in 1884 a few years after renting it with his new bride Roxa. Homer so loved his home in Doon that he only left to travel, but always returned and stayed until his death in 1936. This rare painting by Homer’s sister Phoebe shows Homer’s wife, Roxa, and his mother in the kitchen. The kitchen was located in the basement of the house so that the heat would rise from the ovens and keep the room warm. The kitchen is one of the largest rooms in the house and is now used as a studio. Image: Phoebe Watson, untitled (In the Kitchen), c1890’s, oil on canvas, Homer Watson House Gallery
