Job Carr Cabin Museum is a cherished community resource - whether you are interested in local history or in need of a great photo backdrop. Many Old Town Park visitors appreciate the rustic touch it adds. Countless weddings have been chronicled with pictures taken on our front porch...
But the front porch is just the beginning... those who step inside are amazed to be transported to an earlier time. In 2013, our visitor numbers broke all previous records. Many of these people were seeing the Cabin for the first time. If you've never visited the Cabin, we invite you to "step inside and step back in time."
Job Carr Cabin Museum will host four special events in 2014:
Our 10th Annual "Eureka!" Auction & Dinner on Friday, May 2ndPioneer Days Festival takes place on Saturday, Sep. 20The inaugural "Eureka!" Breakfast will take place on Thursday, Oct. 23Old Town Tree-Lighting & Santa Visit in early December
