They had a lot of dolls and houses on display. You can tell the artist put a lot of passion and care into building and decorating the houses.

Housed in a historic downtown home, this is an interesting collection. The house is beautiful and the owners are very gracious.

My wife wanted to present and discuss photographs of childhood dollhouse (1952) to learn more about it. The collection that we saw filled a very large room in this historic B&B house. The range and variety of the collection was impressive. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable (read expert).

The Town and Country Club Antique group spent a day at the Hampton House in Walterboro, SC. This is a charming restored historic bed and breakfast with an amazing doll and dollhouse collection. This is well worth seeing and the town is very charmimg also. We also had lunch there and the food is great.
