Mr Straw's House
Mr Straw's House
A time capsule of early 20th century life, Mr Straw's House is a suburban house in a residential area of Worksop, captured just as it was in the 1920s when it was inhabited by the eccentric Straw family. The house displays an eclectic mix of period costumes, memorabilia, and household items.
Visitors can listen to recorded memories of people who knew the Straw family during their time here. Behind the house is an attractive garden so typical of suburban houses of this period. Mr Straw was a local grocer, and his fairly unusual family threw nothing away in their over 60 years residence in the house. See family letters, photos, and Victorian era furniture exactly as the family left them.
