We spent a pleasant hour here seeing the Yarborough family home where three generations including Senator Ralph Yarborough lived. Our guides were welcoming and knowledgeable and very proud of Chandler's Museum and their hometown.

My MIL grew up near Chandler and her aunts ran the switchboard. We took her to visit, and she really enjoyed the blast from the past. The museum was well organized and the lady there very well-informed. Really enjoyed our time there.
