 Return to the elegance of the late 19th century by visiting the Reeves Victorian Home and its adjoining Carriage House Museum, located in Dover, Ohio.  This opulent mansion, the former residence of prominent

Dover industrialist, Jeremiah E. Reeves, is owned and operated by the Dover Historical Society.

The 17 room Victorian home, topped by a third floor ballroom, has been carefully restored by the Society to its original turn-of-the-century splendor and features the unique treasures of the original furniture and antiques that were the property of Mr. and Mrs. Jeremiah E. Reeves, arranged as they would have been 100 years ago.  

These beautiful family furnishings can be viewed as guests take a guided room by room tour of the home.

The Carriage House Museum, located behind the home, keeps its original purpose by housing an interesting collection of vehicles, including the family's original 1892 carriage, along with the family sleigh, a rare 1922 electric car, and a restored doctor's buggy.  The upstairs of the Carriage House features an exhibit celebrating Dover's years as a canal town as well as the town's rich history.
