The curator's mother, Elizabeth Carver, spent years collecting and making little things for her eleven room colonial dollhouse that looks a lot like the home she lived in as a chlld.
There was a time in Martha's life that creating dollhouses became a welcome outlet. Like her mother she loved the attention to detail as you will see when you visit the museum.
Look closely and you will see tiny toys, elaborate tubs and vanities, beautiful furniture, miniature tea sets, shoe collections, country kitchens and hand painted table sets.
The 50 dollhouses include Martha's childhood home (a former chicken coop), Victorian homes, antique tin 2-story, Meadow Lane farm, Bower's country store, Abe Lincoln's home and Sherlock Holmes' apartment.
Group tours are available on request. Please contact us.
The museum showcases the passionate work of Martha Simon. Come and see what has kept Martha entertained for the last several decades. The museum features a variety of dollhouse styles, and each one is decorated with individual touches.
Ten percent of proceeds go to the Loving Heart Foundation's backpack program.
