"Hoosier" is the name given to a particular style of kitchen work unit,
popular in the early 1900's. Designed around a large wood cabinet often made of oak,
'Hoosiers" are distinguished by special features such as pull-out porcelain
work areas, large flour bins, sugar bins, tin bread drawers, spice jars, pot and
pan racks and many other features for the "modern, efficient kitchen."
