The Pioneer Store Museum consists of an 1880 Silver Boom Town mercantile. It was closed in rhe early 1920s, and was sealed up with lumber and tin over all of the windows and doors. It stood that way, unmolested, for nearly 70 years. When opened, the merchandise, including food stuff, was still on the shelves. It is the intent of the owners to preserve the 'store' as it was found for the benefit of the public.
