The Doll House was on the lowest level of the Cliff House back in the 1950s, right where the Musee Mecanique would eventually be located. Mother Larke and her collection of miniatures were even featured in an episode of the Mickey Mouse Club.

Several years ago this same question came up on another SF history board, and you can read the entire thread at It even includes a response from one of Mother Larke's descendants.
