The main gallery also displays the 100+ year-old pump organ, and the glass-door Foss family cabinet. The west gallery describes beekeeping and the success of John Harbison as a world-renowned apiarist, and includes a replica of The Harbison Hive which was widely used in the late 1800’s. Other exhibits here include Native Bees, Alpine Birds, and Agriculture in Early Alpine.
In front of the museum, a signboard recalls the healthy climate that brought many new residents to town in the late 19th and early 20th centuries with the slogan: “Alpine, Best Climate in the U.S.A., by Government Report.”
