Strong Doll Museum Query

 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. 

Thanks so much.
