Photo Phriday - Victorian Doll Museum

There are interesting places to see all around. This building was constructed in the early 1900s and served as the town's only commercial establishment, a general store, soda fountain, and gas station. After WWII, it became a dry cleaners, barber shop, and bookstore. In 1970, it became the Victorian Doll Museum. Over 3000 dolls are here, dating from the 1800s to today. One of the most interesting was the soap doll from the 1870s; she really is made from soap! I just loved the wedding display - it showed a mouse wedding. The museum also serves as a doll hospital. What's in your backyard?
Don't forget about Josef-he needs your vote-he's in the white lilacs
