Three ladies that had been raised in Beatty, played in Rhyolite, and had roamed the hills of the Bullfrog Mining District, realized that a very important part of history was being lost. Over coffee at a local restaurant, they put together the Beatty Museum and Historical Society. Talking all their friends in becoming members they opened their first museum in a small cottage in 1995. They soon outgrew the little cottage through the generosity of the residents of Beatty. It soon became apparent that they needed a larger building, and leased the old water building across the street. That worked well for another 5 years. Again they outgrew the building, the Museum is now open on Main Street in a wonderful Historical Church. The Museum has expanded the original building making room for a larger collection.
