The Newton County Historical Society acquired the former home of Dr. William A. Bradley in 1992 when his grandson, Mr. Bill Stiritz. donated funds for the Historical Society to purchase the home and run as a museum in memory of his grandparents.  Prior to that the Newton County Historical Museum had been housed in the former laundromat building close to the City Hall.

 

Since the move to the Bradley House, we have added the Chaney House to the museum grounds.   It is a dogtrot log home built in the mid 1800 by the Chaney family in Osage where it formerly sat until we purchased it, dismantled and moved it to Jasper.   The old house which survived the Civil War and is thought to have been a Butterfield Stage Stop is not completely restored yet due to a lack of funds.  It cost a lot more to build a log cabin now then it did back in the day.
