Kemerer Museum of Decorative Arts
This museum is the passionate expression of its founder, local collector Annie S. Kemerer, and her love of beautiful objects. Exquisite Bohemian glass, fine needlework, tall case clocks, dolls, cast-iron toys and landscape paintings are just some of the items exhibited here.
In 2006, the Kemerer Museum received the bequest of The Elizabeth Johnston Prime Dollhouse and Toy Collection. This world-renowned collection features 50 different types of structures including dollhouses, stores, safari scenes, room boxes, cupboard houses, stables, zoo buildings and forts plus thousands of furnishings, dolls and figures to accompany them. The objects date from the 1830s to the 1930s and are primarily from Germany, England, Great Britain and the United States.
