Experience the warmth and charm of life as it was lived by a small-town doctor.  Dr. Thomas R. Kerr, his wife Jessie, and daughter Virginia lived in their gracious home in Oakmont, a quaint town outside of Pittsburgh that provided an escape from the often harsh conditions of life in the city. The museum portrays middle-class family life in the late nineteenth century. This period was marked by the extremes of fabulous wealth and grinding poverty, which overshadowed the emerging middle class.

The bridal theme is carried throughout the house, showing the dining room and parlor as it might have been set up for a wedding celebration.
