This place was fascinating with so much history from Prescott's early days. Lots of buildings to go through and in some there were people to explain more the history of that building. Please allow a couple or more hours for a thorough going through.

Great place to learn about the history of the area. Helpful, friendly staff loves to tell the stories of the area in an interesting way, enough to keep both an 8 and 15 year old's attention. Make this a "must stop" on your trip plan!
