Hollis Museum of Popular Culture
The Hollis Museum of Popular Culture is a two-story, 4,200-square-foot private museum of pop-culture artifacts and ephemera from the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and early 1980s. It was founded in 2008 by historian Tim Hollis as an extension of his home on Sharon Boulevard (Walker County Road 81) in Dora. The museum is open to the public by appointment only.
The museum houses more than 20,000 objects, including large collections of toys, board games, lunch boxes, children's books, food packaging, records, novelty glassware, and figurines, predominantly featuring cartoon characters. It also displays recreations of Hollis' childhood surroundings, his collection of children's Halloween costumes, and vintage Christmas displays, including pieces salvaged from the City of Dora and Pizitz's "Enchanted Forest" displays. Additional exhibits showcase ephemera from vacation destinations and roadside attractions in the southern United States.
