Celebrating the History of Wiggins and Stone County
Doll Show and Tea Party
Join The Old Firehouse Museum as we celebrate the life of Emilie Blackmore Stapp, children’s author, philanthropist, and collector, with her sister Marie, of dolls from around the world.
The Museum will host a Doll Show and Tea Party on Saturday, March 15th from 10AM-4PM at the Ferris O’neal Senior Center.
The dolls in the photo are from the personal collection of Mike Cain. The Indian doll is from late 40’s, given to her by her grandfather, Rev. N.J. Lee. Doll in the chair is a “Toni doll”… early 50’s. This doll was entered into the doll show at Stapp’s home…sister Carole’s bride doll won, but Mike’s did not! The rag doll was made for Mike in 1947 by her grandmother, Mrs. N.J. Lee and is named Suzie Q.
