Erie County, New York / Willard-Jolls

The Orchard Park Historical Society preserves the keepsakes of Orchard Park's history in the Town of Orchard Park Historical Museum located in the Jolls House. This Victorian house, built in 1870, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was the home and office of Dr. Willard Jolls, a devoted country doctor. The Society has restored the contents of the doctor's waiting, examining and medicine rooms, including all his medical equipment, as he last used them. The museum features an exhibit of Indian artifacts, collections of military uniforms, dolls, pewter, tools and an unusually complete collection of spinning and weaving items.
