The town of Beacon is full of history so some volunteers have come together to provide tourists with the Beacon Museum. It has a range of historic articles from pictures to actual items that were used in the wars. There are even pictures of some of our locals as teenagers looking very happy and brave while they fight for their country. The museum is a working progress that will enlarge itself to something huge. Right now, access to the museum is through Beacon Central so it is only open from 9-4, Mon - Fri. Eventually we will be putting in glass walls so the display will be visible from outside for those tourists that come through after hours.
