As of two weeks ago, I have a new job. I am now the director and curator of the New Milford, Connecticut Historical Society Museum. I will still be running my business, A Sweet Remembrance. The only difference will be that I am working at the museum on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursday mornings.
The museum has a very nice doll collection, although only one of the dolls is cloth. It is a Moravian Polly Heckewelder doll. Other collections you might find of interest are the extensive costume and quilt holdings.
If you are in the area and have time to visit, the museum is open on Thursday, Friday and Sunday from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m., starting the last week in April through September. The first exhibit of the season this year is on Abraham Lincoln, in honor of his 200th birthday.
