Set in the adjoining gardens of the Sharlot Hall Museum where numerous artisans were selling their works. Excellent variety of oil paintings, jewelry, textiles, wood carvings and much more I am certain to forget! What a treat it was to see the local talent. Purchased a birthday gift for someone that I cannot talk about! Hey, it's a secret! I... More

When you're in Prescott don't forget to stop by the Charlotte Hall Museum so that u can checkout the local history in the area. They have some great items that are historical and interesting to boot. The country and western setting makes this the perfect place to stop in when you have an hour or two. It's just off of... More

We went round all of the houses... More

The museum keeps adding new things to see! Our small group was lucky enough to have Duane as our volunteer guide. Duane obviously loves what he is doing and was extremely informative and passionate about the museum. He was also very funny! He kept us entertained, especially with his stories of how the grade school kids on his tour react... More

Sharlot Hall Museum is historically educational. We enjoyed learning more of the history of Arizona and Sharlot Hall together with information about John Fremont. During this visit there were demonstrations and talks that are not an everyday occurence. One table had example of guns through early days and another gentlemen was showing what methods were used to color materials. Very... More
