History of Betty’s Cabin & Dollhouse

Betty’s Cabin originated as a purchase from a man in Brown County. Betty
had it reconstructed near her childhood home. In the late 1960s to early 1970s, the cabin was deconstructed. The current cabin is based on this design.

The original Betty’s Dollhouse was built around 1905. It stood where the current reproduction house is now until around 1980, when Betty donated it to the Ball Memorial Hospital Charity Auction. Unfortunately, the original house was destroyed in a storm. The current dollhouse is a fairly exact reproduction.
