Built in 1906 by a local lumberman, and designed to reflect both Beaux-Arts Colonial and Southern Greek Revival styles of architecture, the house was sold to the Chambers family in 1914. C. Homer and Edith Fuller Chambers moved into the home with their two young daughters, Ruth, 11 and Florence, 16 months old. The Chambers family occupied the house for almost a century. While the Chambers daughters did go off to college, a fairly unusual occurrence in those days, both returned home and never married.
After the last Chambers daughter passed away the house was cared for by the Beaumont Heritage Society. The house was untouched by time for nearly 100 years, and today the house is exactly as the Chambers left it. The collection inside contains nearly all of the original family furniture and artifacts, most dating back to the 1924 remodel.
