The historic mansion on Shilling Avenue was built during 1905, by John and May Brown. It now houses the Bingham County Historical Society Museum. The museum is open to the public for tours during the summer season, weekly from May through September, on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 12:00-5:00PM. Admission cost is $2.00 for those 6 and older.
With 15 rooms, 4 large white columns on the front porch and a sun room, one can see the southern style of architecture, the Browns home state of Tennessee had on the building.
Once thought to be the social center of Blackfoot the grand old building returns to its glory for one week each Holiday Season. The decorations are truly breath-taking during the open-house celebration and well worth a winter time visit to the museum.
In partnership with the Bingham County Historical Society Archives, the Society works hand in hand to preserve and pass on the history of Bingham County for future generations.
