Medallion Home Museum


In 1907, W. H. Seastrunk built a Carpenter Gothic house on his ranch and later disassembled and rebuilt it in town. Now the Medallion Home, it features multiple interpretive period furnishings and, appropriate to its time, no artificiallighting. The interior still carries some of the beaded ceiling, then a popular feature. The kitchen has a wood-burning stove and old-fashioned ice box. One room features the 1915 Victorian wedding dress and marriage license of Kate Lovett Baird, whose family once owned the house. Historic photos recapture Kermit’s history during the 1910s and 1920s, when a nearby oil discovery created a boomtown.
