Architecturally, one of the most interesting parts of the museum is the cupola. When the home was first built the cupola helped cool the home and provided natural lighting. Today, it offers visitors a nice view of the town. The view to the north is dominated by the Western New Mexico Campus and "Gospel Hill", so called because of the number of churches located there. To the south you will see one of Silver City's oldest neighborhoods. It is named "La Capilla" for the chapel that was located on the hilltop until 1915. To the west the view is dominated by the Grant County Court House.
