The Lobby on the ground floor is the first area that the public sees when they enter the Heritage Center from Baker Street.
At present the lobby area includes a large gallery of significant historical photographs of our area, and a portion of our museum collection in exhibited on the floor, on every wall and in glass display cases.
One of the museum pieces is the original soda fountain which stood at the south side of the current lobby in the 1950’s, when the Heritage Center space was used by the original occupants, The Sweet Shop. The Heritage Center is a contributing structure in the Mountain Home Historic Business District on the National Register of Historic places.
Expansion of the museum is anticipated for the future by utilizing some of the space on the upper level of the Heritage Center, but that's a project which will require additional funding.
