A delightful small museum, volunteers were very engaging. Especially the ex AT&SF division manager. The volunteers have done a nice job in still remote village.

A wonderful little museum with the history of this smelter town. It was the first planned community established in 1912.
They have a tour of historic homes every year. In 2020 the tour will be April 18th. This is paired with the re enactment of a failed bank robbery of 1928. Participants are in 1928 apparrel.
This museum is a treasure grove of information

Spend an hour at the Clarkdale Museum! The museum is a small building located in the town center. The volunteer curator is a life long resident of Clarkdale and walks you through the history of the town and surrounding area. The displays of historic items do much to augment the story of Jerome, Clarkdale, and the mining community.

Had a fascinating tour and discussion with the gentleman running this place who's family is from here and who grew up here. My wife had read the book Hidden Mansions about the guy Clark who developed the copper industry here and she wanted to learn more. Learn more we did - including how Clarkdale was the most modern city in Arizona with electricity, running water and sewers etc. Clark was an incredible guy and you are sure to be surprised and fascinated by what he did and how worked to be the success he was.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit us. We are off Main Street just one block but it's worth the effort. Our staff is all volunteers and we love our small historic town and it shows in every one of us! Please recommend us to your friends.

History of the company town of Clarkdale, the Clark family, and the mining and cement operations. Admission is free. The didn't has lived in the town for decades and was quite knowledgeable. After her stories, we were motivated to buy 2 books from the little bookstore, "Empty Mansions" and "The Ghost of the Cuban Queen Bordello".

The third Wednesday morning of every month they give a tour of the clubhouse. We happened to be in the area and decided to do the tour which is free. Cindy and Jerry were so nice, and it was interesting to hear their stories of the early days of Clarksdale. They gave us a very nice tour of the clubhouse which I believe was built in the early 1900's. They were both a wealth of information and you could see the pride they had of their town. We enjoyed the tour and the friendly town folks very much.

Volunteers take pride in their museum. We took the headset but probably not necessary. Old Kitchen was most impressive!

We had a wonderful time at this museum. Janet the docent was extremely knowledgeable about the history and founding families and the community. As someone who grew up in the town Janet had some wonderful stories to share. We would highly recommend a stop in Clarkdale.
