The Pikes Peak Historical Society owns and operates two museums, the main one at this location and the Florissant Schoolhouse Museum, which is located at 2009 Teller County Road #31. Opened in 2005, the main museum features exhibits about Native American culture, western expansion (railroading, settlement, etc.), the Gold Rush, and displays rock, mineral and fossil specimens from the Florissant Lineament. The Schoolhouse Museum consists of the school building and the former teacher's residence, known as a "teacherage," which was built around 1907; they are located next to each other. This museum features a vintage collection of books, desks and memorabilia dating to the 1800s. There is also a collection of 50 miniature historic buildings crafted by local artist Ken Goehring. The schoolhouse was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990 as a well-preserved example of a rural school structure.
