I recall as a young girl, and extreme love, nearly an obsession with doll houses and dolls. I recall that on several occasions we visited the Margaret Woodbury Strong Doll Museum in the home at 700 Allens Creek Road. I must have been quite young, 5 in 1962, perhaps even prior to that. I recall a fascination with the doll houses at the Strong Estate on Allens Creek Road and the dolls as well. Seems I recall visiting with family visiting Rochester.
Do you recall the fact that the Strong Estate at 700 Allens Creek Road was open to the public for visitation as a doll museum? Any idea what years? The article in CLR does not mention that this was a public museum at one time. I wanted to verify the information for myself, since I can't seem to find it online.
I'm very interested in local history, especially the Erie Canal, local historical women of note, and the Finger Lakes.
