Chambers House Museum

I would like to invite you to take a tour of the Chambers House Museum located at 2240 Calder Avenue in Beaumont, Texas. The house is open for tours Tuesday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.  Saturday tour hours are from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.

The house was built in 1906 by a local lumberman who sold the house to the Chambers family in 1914. C. Homer and Edith Fuller Chambers moved into the home with their two daughters, Ruth and Florence. The family cherished this home for the rest of their lives. While the Chambers daughters did go off to college, 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 the house contains nearly all of the original family furniture and artifacts. 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 the 1940’s time period.
