In the Exhibit Cases
Helen Frisbee, the granddaughter of Charles Close (owner of Old Hundred Tea Room which was the house at the corner of Titicus and June Roads where the North Salem Center/post office now sits) has donated a doll with a complete wardrobe hand stitched by Mrs. Close. The skirts, dresses, coats, hats etc are remarkable items, intricately detailed with pleats and lace, in the style of the late 1800's. Helen is now 98 years old and still remembers vividly stories of her childhood at the Close Homestead.
