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 the rest of their lives. While the Chambers daughters did go off to college, a fairly unusual occurrence in those days, both returned home and never married. Few changes occurred to the house or it's furnishings in nearly 90 years of Chambers family occupancy.
The collection inside contains nearly all of the original family furniture and artifacts, most dating to a 1924 remodel. Very little was thrown away and they rarely purchased anything new. A truly unique tour awaits anyone wishing to see how an upper middle class family lived life during the 1920’s through 1940’s time period.
