TIME DOES WAIT FOR SOME
Visitors to the Chambers Historical House Museum, home of the Chambers family throughout the 20th century in Beaumont, are in for a bit of a time warp. Built in 1906 and designed to reflect both Beaux-Arts Colonial and Southern Greek Revival styles of architecture, the Chambers House was occupied by Chambers family members for almost one hundred years. After the last member of the family passed away, the house and contents came under stewardship of the Beaumont Heritage Society. When Society members entered the house for the first time, they discovered an interior and furnishings practically unchanged for almost a century. Despite the fact that the world outside had changed dramatically, the house and all its contents had remain the same as if frozen in time. Today, visitors who tour the home will still find it just the way the Chambers family left it. Christmas Open House is a popular annual event, and displays of photos and family artifacts change throughout the year.
