The Elliott Museum was founded in 1960 by Harmon Elliott in memory of his father, turn-of-the-century inventor Sterling Elliott. Created to showcase the inventive genius of Elliott and the 'American spirit.' Exhibits and shops are housed in the Americana Wing and the Elliott Gallery features changing art and history exhibits, plus programs of local interest.
Displays include an apothecary, a barber shop, blacksmith forge and ice cream parlor in addition to a wealth of unique collections of dolls, clocks and watches, pipes and tobacco, and more. One of the museum's highlights is an authentic hand-carved miniature circus; other galleries present antique bicycles, autographed memorabilia from Baseball Hall of Fame members, and vintage cars which include a 1926 Bugatti Grand Prix race car.
