Chambers House Museum, Beaumont, TX Photos

The Chambers House (built 1906) was purchased by Mr. & Mrs. Chambers in 1914. Their two daughters, Ruth and Florence, who did not marry, lived in the house until Florence died in 2004. The Beaumont Heritage Society restored the home as a museum house of the early 20th C.
