The preservation of this home and the history of Wirt County is the work of a dedicated group of women, the Daughters of American Pioneers, as well as other Wirt County residents. The community worked together to collect and donate artifacts from the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and turned the Beauchamp-Newton house into a museum. Some of the artifacts include Elizabeth's grand piano in the parlor, Beauchamp's original desk , a handmade cradle from 1862, an (unusual for the time period) walk-in and sit-down tub, and a rope bed.1. The doll room contains a period doll carriage, dolls, and clothing. The museum also houses historical documents from the first county court and documents that pertain to the founding of Wirt County, like the original county seal, property and pictures of early residents.
