Sunday, December 1, 2013 - 10:00am to Sunday, January 5, 2014 - 4:30pm

Please join us for an exciting exhibit focusing on the Historic Odessa Foundation’s collection of early to late 19th century toys.
With the advent of the Industrial Revolution the character of toys began to change from the homemade to the more sophisticated. This occurred in conjunction with the ability of manufacturers to produce and distribute them in large quantities and while toys were always produced in America many toy stores were stocked with European toys…in fact…Nuremburg, Germany became a world center for toy manufacturing. To learn more about the evolution of toys and children at play visit the Historic Odessa Foundation this holiday season...from a beautiful period doll house…to a cosmopolitan Paris park scene…children and adults alike will delight in this colorful array of antique toys!
