The fourth annual Doll House Exhibition this weekend returns to Case-Barlow Farm, located at 1931 Barlow Road, with more than 50 dollhouses and miniature rooms on view.



Volunteer Barbara Bos said that number is up from 35 last year, and each house or room has never been shown at the farm before.



She added that their exhibitors have grown more enthusiastic each year, and are often ready to sign up for next year, before the current show even closes.



The offerings on view range from Victorian mansions to an ultra-modern "house of the future," from 1965.



One local architect, Jim Pesce, creates a period room each year, rather than a traditional dollhouse.



There is also a model train room on display in the attic, should some members of your party not have quite as much interest in dolls and miniatures, as others.



The houses are displayed throughout the 15-room farmhouse. 



The event runs from 1-4 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and continues on Dec. 1, 8, 15, and 22.



The event is a benefit for the historic house and farm, and tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for children. Tickets are available at the door and at The Learned Owl bookstore.
