As the Industrial Revolution progressed, factories popped up and down the East Coast and millions of people flocked to the bright lights of the cities in search of fortune. The architecture of cities changed; homes had to be designed to accommodate the large influx of people and the wealthy business tycoons built their city estates. From row-homes to brownstones, the buildings on display from the Elizabeth Johnston Prime Dollhouse Collection provide a glimpse into what life would have been like living in the Big City.
