During the American Revolution War, toys as well as Many other household supplies, were scarce. Mothers mad dolls form the fathers handerchiefs give their children somethin got play with anytime. The doll was fist called a "church doll" or "prayer doll" as it was used during hose very long church service and most importantly, if there were dropped, not a sound was heard. At the turn of the century, when the 1803 house was being built, these dolls were modified with lace, ribbon and dried flowers as these items were more available after the war. The dolls made at that time were very similar to our "1803 House Church Baby".
