The House on The Rock ~Journal 2 The History Center

All pictures are from our vacation.

Tour One~Section One


After the Oriental Garden, one enters into the History Center.  This was an addition and opened to the public sometime in 2009.  The History Center provides exactly that...the History of the House as well as Alex Jordan Sr. and Jr.  It also displays some of the collections as well. I found it interesting to find out that Alex was over 6 feet tall yet the ceiling in the house was barely over my head and in some places I had to lower my head just a little bit.. The house definitely has an oriental feel through out it. The History Center not only provides the history of the House on The Rock but the history of Alex Jordan's life.

Alex Jordan collected so many things.  
One collection started out as wooden carousel horses.
The collection grew to include other wooden carousel creatures and eventually plastic horses as well.
