Detailed Description:

Alpine has a long history and the Alpine Historical Society is the place to learn about it. The first reported Europeans to enter the Alpine area were in the late 1700s but it wasn’t until the late 1880s when Alpine became the town of Alpine. The Beaty house is one of the main buildings in the Museum complex. Captain Adam Beaty came to Alpine in 1969 and was a beekeeper and school board trustee among other things. The Nichols house (Dr. Sophronia Nichols was Alpine’s first doctor in 1888) is another of the main buildings under the Historical Society.
