Homer and Edith Fuller Chambers purchased the house and moved in with their two daughters, Ruth who was 12 years old and Florence who was 2 years old. Ruth and Florence never married and lived in the house after Mr. & Mrs. Chambers passed away. After Florence's death in May of 2004, the Beaumont Heritage Society got the first glimpse of the interior of the house. It was a treasure trove of furniture, personal items and artifacts that had survived nearly 100 years. Although it has been referred to as a restoration, it really is a conservation project since nothing had been changed in nearly 100 years. Entering the house is truly like stepping back in time.Hours are Tuesday - Friday, 10am-3pm and Saturday, 10am-2pm. Admission is $3 for adults, $2 for seniors, and $1 for students. « less
