The building that houses the Indian & Sea Museum was originally built in 1910 as a schoolhouse. It has served as a museum since 1995 and was moved to its present location in 1999.
An Open House was held on Saturday, November 20, 2010 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the building. Cake & Refreshments were served and long time area residents shared their memories of how the building had played an integral part in the community.
