“Come visit this quaint museum!”

First opened in 1973, the primary focus of the museum is the interpretation of life in early Emmett. Beginning with the Native Americans who first inhabited the land, the contributions of the trappers, miners and settlers who made the irrigation system and the fruit industry possible are chronicled through a large collection of photographs as well as full-sized period displays of a general store, a turn-of-the-century parlor, a laundry room and a combined doctor's and dentist's office. In addition, there is a special tribute to the men and women who have served in the armed forces. Other museum highlights include period-style clothing, a rare hand-hewn "laying out board" considered a nicety by families coming west with all their belongings stuffed in a wagon, a "coyote gun" used by area sheepherders, a ships lamp from the Battleship Arizona, and a broom maker used from the 1880s through the Depression. With so much to see, you will want to visit this quaint museum.
