Ca. 1832 · East Dorset, Vermont
—Original Owner: Welcome Allen · Moved to Museum: 1953 —This classic example of Greek Revival architecture originally served as a two-family house for the children of Welcome Allen. The Allens, who owned an iron foundry, built their home in the latest fashion, utilizing stoves for heat rather than open-hearth fireplaces. The building houses the Museum's extensive working and decorative wildfowl decoy collections and miniature bird carvings. The second floor is devoted to open storage.
