- History & Culture travel tip
- City center
The dining hall is used by local groups for annual functions including the Belen Art League's Spring and Fall Art Shows, the model train club's large display and the local fiber groups Fiber Show.
Upstairs the rooms, formerly occupied by the Harvey Girls who lived there, now house a variety of museum displays on the local history. Each room has a different theme such as beauty shop, banking, school and my favorite the movie room.
