Founded in 1974, and moved to its present location in 2000, the Little Claybelt Homesteaders Museum offers unique insights into the history of the region. Exhibits are changed periodically to reflect what we know of pioneer life in the area from the 1880s through the 1950s.Open primarily in the summer, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm admission is free as the museum operates on donations at the door, sales from the Gift Shop, and through community efforts. As a tourist visiting, the insights add a lot to your visit in the area. As a resident, it is reassuring to know that our ancestor's efforts are being recorded, preserved and made available for research.

This quaint little museum is the result of the hard work of many volunteers. I find it especially interesting because it is a replica of the Basket and Wood Pump Works Factory built by my great grandfather. The original building was here in town up on Shepherdson Road near the hospital but it was removed many years ago. The displays... More

This is a great museum. It has a lot of local history and you should definitely go if you live around here. They do bring in exhibits from other museums from time to time and change their displays so come every year. The building was modelled after my great grandfather's basket and casket works that used to stand on Shepherdson... More
