Toy Museum Spans 1,700 Years


Author(s):
Abstract:
The Old Salem Toy Museum in Winston-Salem was founded in 2002 by Tom Gray and his mother, Anne Gray. The museum is housed in the Frank L. Horton Museum Center, and the thousands of toys in the collection span a period of 1,700 years. One of the rare items in the museum is a paint set George Washington gave his step-granddaughter in 1793 for her fourteenth birthday. Gray had to outbid the staff at Mount Vernon for the toy.
