Fannie Overholt Doll Collection







Mary Frances Golden, the daughter of Minna and Paul Golden of Marlinton, graduated from Edray District High School. After attending Mary Bladwin Seminary and West Virginia University, she graduated from Teachers' College at Columbia University, NYC, in 1919. She married Paul R. Overholt and taught in the Pocahontas County schools until her retirement. "Miss Fannie," as she was affectionately known to her students, had an extensive doll collection from around the world. Many of the dolls in her collection were donated to the Historical Society and are on display at the museum.
