I could have spent much more time reading and viewing the exhibit. They have letters written to family members when someone died in combat. The tone and structure of the letters from the commanding officers is heart wrenching. There are written jury verdicts from different trials including when the sheriff of Jerome was tried for shooting an outlaw. There is... More

One of the folks at Passion Cellars told us to drive to the Museum and wander around the machinery and look down the 1900 ft mine shaft. Very cool. We just weren't in the mood for a full museum - so we enjoyed the free peek into history.

You can spend a couple of hours here reading all the information and looking at everything. We found it interesting. My teenage son enjoyed reading the town history. There are so many subjects from medical, police, high... More

This was an old mining town. Underlining caused buildings to slide down the street. Women were few men were a lot so ladies of the evening worked hard. This is a town now of artisans and the view is spectacular. Well worth the time to travel to from Sedona and see how thing were years ago. People are friendly and... More

For only $2.00 a person, this little museum is well worth visiting. It's a great way to spend an hour and to learn quite a bit about the local history.
