The Jefferson Township Museum, also known as the George Chamberlain House, will have its spring open house on Sunday, May 6, from 1-4 p.m. Admission is free.
Costumed docents will be available to talk about the Victorian home. Featured this month will be an exhibit of antique and vintage dolls and toys from a private collection. Curator Lynda MacDonald will give an informal talk about toys of the period and demonstrate how to play with some of them.
Be sure to visit Miss Elizabeth’s Shoppe, located in the original kitchen of the house. The Shoppe is packed with new and vintage items for sale, perfect for spring or any time. You may be lucky enough to see some flowers poking through in the museum’s lovely gardens, too.
The museum, located at 315 Dover-Milton Road, was entered into the National and State Registers of Historic Places in 2010. For further information, refer to the Jefferson Township Historical Society website at www.jthistoricalsociety.org or call president Christine Williams at 973-697-0258.
