Located in the 1882 Old Chaffee County Courthouse, the Buena Vista Heritage Museum exhibits include a fashion room, commerce and industry room, and schoolroom. The Buena Vista Depot (the last remaining depot in Chaffee County), the St. Elmo Schoolhouse Museum, and the St. Elmo Town Hall & Jail are all works in progress of the Buena Vista Heritage that can also be visited.
