History

It all began when Frank and Louise Moshinskie created miniature buildings and people. Their creation went on to be referred to as “Tiny Town”. The Moshinskie’s spent decades carving all of the people and bringing life to the animated display. Frank was only 13 when he began making some of the pieces. Within the display is a replica of the farm that Frank grew up on as well as a neighboring home that resembles the one that he and his wife Louise raised their own family in.

When Frank and his wife Louise passed away, their son Charles took over the display. It has since become a family business. Charles and his wife Barbara and their son Jim have made the display open to the public to keep the family work alive and for visitors to enjoy. This inspiring display may even encourage you to start your very own Tiny Town!
