Walker Hill Museum

Tour the 1900s through this rare collection of exhibits and experience life from these key perspectives.

  • Communication- How did soldiers on the front lines of WWI communicate with their generals? How did a telephone transform from being at one fixed location to being portable and carried around everywhere? Witness the changes that have happened over the last century.
  • Life at home- What did families do in the evenings without television or the Internet? Imagine playing games or listening to a radio show where you had to visualize the show in your imagination.
  • Theatre- How did a theatrical production take place? Sound and light shows in the mid 1900s required creativity and flexibility to achieve the special effects and first class experience audiences expected.
  • Music- What came before the CD or digital music? Take a trip back to the era of LPs, 8-tracks, and cassettes.
  • Keyboard music- What was the dominant musical instrument of the early 1900s? The organ was featured in prominent homes and churches as a focal point of music. See some of the many types of organs, many of which required two hands and two feet to play.
  • Amusement- No visit to Walker Hill is complete without a ride on the
    “Little Beauty” Carousel
