History of Story Land

It began in 1954 when Bob and Ruth Morrell were living in Germany because Bob was in the military at the time during the Korean conflict, according to their website.  Bob and Ruth got a knock on the door one day from a woman by the name of Frau Edith Von Arps.  Frau Von Arps was selling dolls of fairy tale characters and she suggested that the Morrell's start a village based around the dolls.  The seeds were planted for what is Story Land today.
