“Easy to digest history - worth the visit !”
Built in 1906 by a local lumberman, the house was sold to the Chambers family in 1914. C. Homer and Edith Fuller Chambers moved into the home with their two young daughters, Ruth, 11 and Florence, 16 months old. The family cherished this home for...more

This is a gem of a house ! It is big enough to be fascinated by a wide range of rooms and artifacts that enable one to absorb the history and personality of the family who lived here, but not so big as to be...More

Really cool place to see and hear the history. It's very close to the McFadden house, so try to do both!

Compared to the McFaddin-Ward House, this is a step down socially. But it will show you how the middle class lived. The Chambers had 2 daughters who never married and when their parents passed away, they new they wanted the house to become a museum...More

This is a step back in time. The Chambers family kept everything and did not change anything. With the exception of a few items, its the same as it was in 1924. Learn the story of this family. It's all about them.

The docents are very friendly and cordial to the children. I arrived with my husband and an eight and nine year old.. The house explains life in beaumont in the early 20th century. I would highly recommend this house / museum.

Beaumont’s history included not only the Chambers Family – FAMOUS -- but also my husband’s family – NOT SO FAMOUS – except to me! Although the hospital is demolished where my husband was born back in the early 1940s, the Chambers house is still there...More

There are larger, grander homes to see, but the history of the Chambers House was great! A family, pretty much average, lived in this home; two sisters, many years apart in age, maybe 12 year or so. The girls were so spoiled by their Dad,...More

We took a tour during Christmas break, and what a wonderful museum. Not only is it over 100 years old, but the Chambers family saved so much of their original belongings that it makes the home come to life! Kitchen supplies, toys, Christmas stockings and...More

My family and I toured the Chambers House Museum last Saturday. The house is very interesting with all original furniture and items. Our tour guide was very good; the tour took about an hour. This was the home of a middle-class family and they saved...More
