House of Broel's Victorian Mansion and Dollhouse Museum

House of Broel's Victorian Mansion and Dollhouse Museum Review

This restored antebellum home was built in two periods and is an impressive feat of engineering: The upstairs was built in 1850; when the house was elevated in 1884, a new first floor was added. The extensive dollhouse collection includes 60 historically accurate, scale-model miniatures of Victorian, Tudor, and plantation-style houses and covers more than 3,000 square feet on the mansion's second floor. All were created by owner Bonnie Broel over a 15-year period. Walk-in and groups tours are available by appointment, and the mansion offers a spacious setting for weddings, receptions, and parties. Visitors can only view the property on the tours, so be sure to call ahead.
