The "original Homestead" was built in 1767 by Deacon Jeremiah Beal, descendant of Hingham's John Beal - one of the first shoemakers in America. Throughout the 19th century, the Homestead was used as a tavern called "The Solid Rock Inn." The building was later acquired by the Brockton Historical Society and still reflects a mix of 18th, 19th, and early 20th century architecture. The exhibit features items including primitive tools, a cast iron stove, intricate tin ceilings and fine works of art. The Homestead's library contains books, photographs, and genealogical materials relating to every period of Brockton's rich social and economic history.
The installation features “ The Rise and Fall of the American Shoe Industry” a documentary which traces the evolution of American shoemaking from the 16th century to the present. Additionally, the museum displays a popular exhibit of celebrity footwear including those worn by presidents and first ladies as well as Ted Williams, Arthur Fiedler, and Rocky Marciano. The shoe museum also features a unique collection of military shoes from the Civil War through Desert Storm.
