LCHS is moving house…and moving houses. This is the biggest of a collection of doll houses we own. Intern Amy Seelow has fallen in love with this one, so you will be hearing more about it.
We want to put it on display for Christmas, on the main floor at 145 West Ave, in the public area. But right now it is sitting in the garage waiting for the electric lift to get repaired, so it can safely go up that way, rather than be carried up a staircase with multiple turns.
Moving artifacts is all about keeping them, and the people handling them, safe from harm. Most damage to museum collections come when they are being handled by people.
And what is it with doll houses, anyway? Why do people love miniatures so much?
