Warther Museum

Description

Looking for something a little bit different? If you've had enough sports in the home of halls of fame, head a little farther south of Canton to the small town of Dover. Talk about a pro. Ernest Warther (1885-1973) was a carver without peer. His walnut, ebony, ivory, and pearl steam engines have as many as 11,000 working parts. One day "Mooney," as his friends called him, decided to carve a pair of pliers out of a block of wood. Hard enough, but then he thought he could carve another pair into the handle of the first. It just kept multiplying from there. Given a large enough block to start with, Mr. Warther carved 511 pliers, all interlocking, from a single chunk of wood! It is a sight to behold. And Mrs. Warther collected buttons (73,282 of them!), so she was able to add something of her own to this highly original museum. Admission costs $11.50 for adults, $6 for ages 7 to 17. Children 6 and under are free. Hours vary by month.
