The Crow Wing County Historical Society/Museum in Brainerd will host a free holiday open house and bake sale from 3 to 6 p.m. Dec. 8.

Coffee, cider and cookies will be served at the event, which is open to the public. The museum is housed in the former sheriff's residence and jail at 320 Laurel St.

Also on display will be a two-story dollhouse replica of Robert Maghan's home built about 1905 on Crooked Lake south of Deerwood, where he and his wife Alice raised 12 children.

The "Maghan Dollhouse" is complete with miniature furniture, appliances, etc. The porch comes off, and the front and back walls open up to provide a view of the interior rooms.

The actual house was later trimmed down to one story and was recently sold. The family then donated the dollhouse to the society, where it will be on permanent display in the museum.
