Inscription.  
The miniature house was built in 1927 by the park caretaker, E.V. Kelly. It was one of his many winter projects. He traveled to Mapleton, Kansas to find the perfect rocks for the walls.

His daughters, Nadine and Jenny, spent many enjoyable hours making curtains and playing with the house.

Through the years, the doll sized house has brought delight to many visitors.
 
Erected by City of Fort Scott.
