Fodor's Review

This restored antebellum home was built in two periods: its present-day second floor was actually constructed first, in 1850, and in 1884 the house was elevated and a new first floor 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. Tours are available for both walk-ins and groups, and the mansion offers a romantic setting for weddings, receptions, and parties. Visitors can only view the property on tours, which can fill up, so it's best to call ahead.
