Kerr Pic 15.JPG

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.
