The Cushman Dolls’ house was built by a sea captain around 1880 in Duxbury, Massachusetts. He built the house for the Russell children who lived  nearby and placed a sterling silver name plate on the front door. The house has three stories with nine spacious rooms; three on each level. The house is extraordinary with all original wallpapers,  exceptional beautiful drapes and wall to wall carpets. (some carpets are real oriental rug remnants) and inter-connecting paneled doors. It even has pocket door going from the parlor into the hallway. To me, the interior of the house exceeds any dollhouse I have seen! The façade is quite plain with symmetrical windows but has a set of stairs that were made separately for the entrance to the house and were made of cigar boxes. The mansard roof and window trims were painted a deep brown with the sides of the house painted a light brown. The front is removable in three sections. If you have further questions, please email me. I have owned this house for 30 years.
