JEFFERSON, Iowa, August 4, 2023 — More than 300 Barbie dolls will be on display at the Greene County Historical Museum, 219 E. Lincoln Way, from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Aug. 12.
The vast collection, which includes dolls from Barbie’s debut in March1959, was donated to the Museum by former Jefferson resident Arlene Garland Klatt in 2003.
The dolls are dressed in their best, from formal gowns to cheerleading uniforms to swimsuits. What a closet that girl has!
Pink, of course, is the color of the day. There will be pink Barbie decorations, a lifesize pink Barbie Box for for those who wish to pose, drawings for gift cards, plus cinnamon rolls for all.
