The popularity of paper dolls as childhood entertainment will be captured in a special exhibit. Although the peak of popularity was in the mid-1900s, paper dolls have been handmade since the 1700s and mass produced as early as 1812. A wide selection from the vast CCHS collection, numbering over 8,000 paper dolls, will reveal the range of unique and printed pieces that are a feast for the eyes for any fashion enthusiast, celebrity watcher, or child at heart.
