Searles Valley Historical Society


The Old Guest House Museum has many rooms and each room has been given over to a single topic.
The following links will take you to each of the rooms.  Although each page has several photographs,
these are small files and should load quickly, even with a dialup modem.  However, the small file size
for the pictures means that they are of poor quality.  If these pictures interest you, you are urged
to visit the museum to see the real thing.
