  • It was very inexpensive and educational! The tour guide was well knowledgeable!!!
  • Good example of living conditions at the turn of the century.
  • Fantastic place. The staff there were very helpful. They hosted our annual Field Day event this year and were very helpful. Our club, Beaumont Amateur Radio Club occupied the place from Saturday Morning, June 25 to Sunday afternoon, June 26th. We would like to send them a BIG thanks for helping. I would highly recommend visiting the museum.
  • Fun place to host an event! Great place to see our local history. Troy is very pleasant to work with!
