Beacon Museum

The Beacon Museum is situated within the Beacon Central building.  Items of historical interest once used 100 years ago in our farming and home lives include an animal skin rug, sewing machine, lamps, ladies clothes, hats, jewellery and cosmetics. There is also a cabinet of early childhood pastimes including clothing, books and games. The most recent acquisition is a life size mannequin in the model of one of Beacon’s early and most memorable personalities.   In contrast to those early years there is a 1970’s display of clunky shoes, ashtrays, Tupperware toys, and a fondue set amidst LP records and cassettes to bring back memories.
