The Oakeside Museum is housed on the third floor, in the space used as a playroom by the Oakes children. The room is a large space, with paneled walls that conceal copious storage areas, no doubt used for toys by the children.
Today, the Museum offers a glimpse into the Oakes family with some of Jean Doswell Oakes’s shoes, her Red Cross coat from World War II, a traveling trunk used by Miss Jean, a fabric-testing machine from the family’s textile mill, a desk used by the girls for doing homework and a rocking chair and footstool with embroidered cushions. People from the community have contributed various items that have connections to the Oakes family.
Our Museum Curator, Dorothy E. Johnson, continues her quest to find family-related treasures to expand the museum’s collection.
