Quite a nice tribute to this professional golfer and her accomplishments. It doesn't take too long to go through the museum, however it is full of information about a talented woman who excelled years before women's lib.

One of my favorite female athletes. The building is unusual and the inside displays are very simple, but they tell a great story about this native from Beaumont.
