Beaverton was first settled in 1822. The Beaverton Thorah Eldon Historical Society offers tours of three unique buildings with historical importance to the area.
There is a Settler’s log cabin complete with pioneer’s tools on display, a brick Victorian house that showcases the way of life for settler’s nearing the turn of the twentieth century, and perhaps most interesting is the old stone jail. The jail was moved to its present location and completes the trio perfectly.
Tours are led by well-informed and enthusiastic guides on a by-donation basis. There is a gift shop in the basement of the log cabin offering memorabilia ad local crafts. Perfect for the history buff.
