Interesting Visit to the Mountain Home Museum

Have a spare hour? Why not visit our Mountain Home Museum. That's exactly what I did recently. After a quick trip to the County Court House I decided to “revisit” the museum. I've only been there once before but this 2nd trip was much more interesting.

Why “More Interesting”?
The 1st time I was at the museum, I was a greenhorn Mountain Homey. I didn't know the difference between the Bengoechea Hotel building and the High School. This time, I knew better and could really appreciate the history of Mountain Home. If it's been a few years since you've visited our local museum, then it might be time to head back.

What I Liked the Most
The museum has quite a collection of photographs from a time long since forgotten. I gained a sense of how life in Mountain Home was 100 years ago. Seeing how people dressed, how they did business and just how much life has changed for us “modern” citizens was enlightening. I also appreciated the small rock and Native American arrowhead collection. Overall, the 45 minutes I spent at the Mountain Home Museum was quite enjoyable.
