Axtell Antiques was established in 1968 by Richard “Smitty” Axtell. Situated in a restored country inn on the banks of the Delaware River, the business, also known as The Rookery, features some of the best examples of early Americana with emphasis on scarcity, unusual form, and superlative, untouched condition. Museum quality baskets, stoneware, treenware, redware, folk art, iron hearth accessories, country furniture, textiles, art work, glassware and early lighting devices are on display. An adjunct to the Rookery is the Rookery Bookery, with hundreds of books, periodicals, catalogs and paper ephemera.
