Fodor's Review

A stenciled floor and a huge 1930s dollhouse are among the highlights of this museum, which fills the 1896 Georgian-style Dora Jackson House with its 18th-century furniture, paintings, costumes, toys, and household and military items. The Grems-Doolittle Library has Revolutionary War records, newspapers from the 1800s, and the papers of Charles Steinmetz, an inventor who developed alternate-current motors.
