Through her meticulous record keeping and her dream of creating a museum the history of Prescott lives. There was important coverage of the Native Americans and the horrors they endured at the hands of the military and other pioneers. If you are... More

Sharlot Hall Museum is a must do visit for your trip to Prescott. It is more interesting to adults on the norm but if it is during Pioneer Days Celebration , children will love it also. There is so much history in Prescott, and it is so enlightening as Sharlot was instrimental in founding of Prescott. Pioneer Days is great... More

This museum is remarkable for a town the size of Prescott. The museum is built around the original log house, called the "Governor's Mansion," that served as a residence and Executive headquarters for the first Governor of the Arizona Territory in 1864. The museum also includes the house that John Charles Fremont rented when he was the Fifth Governor of... More

This museum revolves around the interest of Sharlot Hall, part of a pioneer family, in preserving the history of the area. Many of the early artifacts are hers. The grounds are the site of the early territorial offices. The local interpreters were wonderful and full of information. This is a must see.

Really enjoyed taking this museum in at our own pace. The staff was very knowledgeable and engaging but, again, letting us wander at our own pace.

A must-see for anyone interested in Arizona history. Sharlot Hall is an Arizona icon; the museum serves her legacy extremely well. The archives are a must for serious research. The casual observer can spend hours here. The old Governor's Mansion is so very instructive. Don't miss this museum.

Sharlot Hall Museum tells the story of Prescott's founding, days as Arizona's Territorial capital and of its key figures, from John C. Fremont to Sharlot Hall, herself. An enormous number of artifacts are available for viewing, in the drawers of the Governor's House, which is the museum's main building.
