2021 Creepy Doll Contest

What began as an innocent perusal by a volunteer in search of interesting artifacts to post on social media became a media sensation in 2019. Nine doll "contestants" were selected from the History Center's collection of artifacts, and the Facebook and Instagram Communities were invited to 'like' the doll they found creepiest. By All Hallow's Eve, staff were fielding messages from around the globe. We are so excited that the dolls have decided to come out again and try to see which one of them will be the Creepiest of them All!!

This year's nine contestant dolls will run on Facebook and Instagram throughout October 2021. Motivated fans can see them "live" at the History Center and cast an in-person vote or vote online beginning October 1, 2021 on our Facebook or Instagram page. 

We are excited to announce that after hundreds of votes have been cast both online and in person, the 2021 Creepy Doll Winner is number 9, GAGOOL!!

Thank you to everyone who voted and we look forward to seeing everyone again next year. 

Creepy Doll Cocktail Party

We had a creeptakular time at the Creepy Doll Cocktail Party and a big part of that was all of our wonderful guests! Thank you for making the event such a huge success. We had a great time at the Castle, enjoyed good food from Cameo and listed to some wonderful music from Equatis. The 2021 Creepy Doll Cocktail Party was a smashing success and we look forward to getting back together again in 2022. Remember to follow us on Facebook to stay up to date on all things History Center!
