Perhaps author Rachel Field's most enduring work was Hitty, Her First Hundred Years.

Readers love Hitty's exciting adventures, narrated by Hitty herself, a tiny wooden doll with a stoic personality and an indomitable spirit.

Field chose the actual Preble House on Great Cranberry Island as the setting of the first three chapters. So the island is Hitty's Home.

Hitty enthusiasts from all over visit the museum to see Hitty City—a collection of donated dolls and accessories.
