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 during in the summer months, 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.
