Long Description:

When thinking about a cookie jar house, typically we think of small porcelain or glass houses used to store cookies. One individual took the love of cookie jars houses one step further by creating a house in the style of a cookie jar. John Dobbins of Glendora, New Jersey has a home that is in the style of a circular shaped cookie jar, complete with a widow's walk "lid." The outside is made of brick, and the inside of the "jar" has a spiral staircase; three stories are connected by this staircase. It was to be the first of several cookie jar houses but the others were never built. The circular building originally had a flat roof and stucco exterior (the bricks were added later).

The only problems the Dobbins family has had are finding furniture to work in the circular shaped building and getting furniture up the circular staircase. Neighbors have enjoyed the house decorations through the years, but their favorite was when the house was decorated as a gigantic jack-o-lantern.
