Rooms of the historic Blunt House in Dalton, Ga., are filled with more than 400 dolls of all kinds and manufacturers for a doll show that will continue through Friday, Dec. 29.

The antebellum home, built in 1848, located at 506 S. Thornton Ave., is property of the Whitfield-Murray Historical Society. The society put out a call to Dalton residents asking for the loan of dolls for its show and got a very positive response.

On display are Madame Alexander dolls, Dixie dolls, Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls, Shirley Temple dolls, Barbie dolls, infant/baby dolls and Bradley dolls. There are Korean, Japanese and Chinese dolls, dolls from India, Europe and the Middle East, Hawaiian dolls, porcelain dolls, antique dolls and modern dolls.

The public may view this collection every Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., or by request. There is a $5 admission fee to tour the house. The dolls will also be displayed during the Whitfield–Murray Historical Society's Christmas tour, Dec. 1-3.
