Miners Museum

The former home of the Lewis Family became the Lafayette Miners Museum in 1976. It was originally located at the Gladstone Mine, northeast of Lafayette. It was moved to Simpson Street following the closing of the mine and served as a family home until 1975, when Hannah Lewis passed away at age 95. The Lafayette Historical Society is responsible for the collection and tours of the museum.
The historic collections contain:
  • Artifacts from pre-founding earliest days of the town
  • Mining history, tools, equipment and artifacts
  • A “school room” preserves the town’s educational heritage including photographs, trophies, and other memorabilia
  • Clothing and household items from daily life
