First to Review

Located in Central Park, I have seen this house and not thought much of it for years. It was moved here in 1972, and while it was built by Timothy and Eliza Whiting, it is not preserved as a testament to them, but rather of Victorian history. Some of the furniture and items inside the house did belong to the Whitings, however most did not. Also, since the house is a Victorian museum, some of the rooms are displayed differently from how the Whitings would have had them, showcasing a library in the downstairs bedroom of the family's daughter, and there is a kitchen in what had been the family dining room. The actual kitchen of the Whiting house would have been in a lean-to behind the house before it was moved.
