DescriptionStep back into the elegance of the late 19th Century by visiting the J.E. Reeves Victorian Home & Carriage House Museum. This opulent mansion, the former home of prominent Dover industrialist, Jeremiah E. Reeves, has been restored by the Dover Historical Society. The 17-room home, topped by a third-floor ballroom, has been carefully restored to its original splendor. This lovely mansion features the unique treasure of containing all of the original furniture and antiques that were the property of Mr. and Mrs. Jeremiah Reeves - all of which are arranged as they would have been 100 years ago. Visitors to the home acquire the feeling that the Reeves Family has just stepped out of the home. The beautiful family furniture and decorative objects can be viewed up close, as there are no ropes or barriers prohibiting your entrance into the rooms. Adjacent to the Home is the Carriage House Museum, which contains an interesting collection of vehicles, including a handsome horse-drawn carriage, the Reeves Family sleigh, a rare 1922 Rauch and Lang electric car, and a doctor's buggy. Throughout the Carriage House are special display areas which include records, photographs, local products, and mementos tracing the events of Dover's past. A gift shop is also available.
