Occupied only by members of the Sims family from the date of its construction, the house was sold in June, 1977, to the City of Orange who then donated it to The Heritage House of Orange County Association, Inc. The Association assumed financial responsibility for its removal to its present location and subsequent restoration. The house is listed on the National Register of Historic places and is designated as a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark.

The House depicts a typical upper-middle-class home from the turn-of-the-century through the 1940's. It is two stories constructed of prime native pine with a finished attic, balustrade porches, five fireplaces and a slate roof.

The Exhibits and other educational programs-including lectures, workshops and craft demonstrations-enhance the museum's visibility and contact with the public. Two such programs are the traveling trunk shows for fourth and seventh grades. The fourth grade depicts the life of Orange County children 100 years ago. The seventh grade shows how children would have spent an average day during the early settlement of Southeast Texas.
