History Fun at the Kent Historical Museum

What better way to celebrate Kent's 125th anniversary than to explore our city's history?

August 16th, 2015

What better way to celebrate Kent’s 125th anniversary than to explore our city’s history? Visitors can do just that with a tour of this charming, air-conditioned museum. Located in the historic Bereiter House at 855 E. Smith St., this two-story museum was built in 1908. With more than 3,500 square feet of exhibit space and 10 foot ceilings, visitors will feel like they’ve entered another era – and they have – at the turn of the 20th century!

The museum’s permanent exhibits include a farming and agriculture display, kitchen and household chore displays, and a community room. In addition, the home features seven period rooms including a living room, dining room, breakfast nook, master bedroom, children’s bedroom, bathroom and sewing room, each furnished with turn-of-the-century décor and furniture. The Kent museum also features a rotating display which changes every three to four months.

The museum is open Wednesday through Saturday from noon to 4 pm and by appointment. Admission is free, but a donation of $2 per person is suggested. Parking behind the museum is free. For more information about the museum, call 253-854-4330, or visit the museum site online for additional historical information, photos and special events.
