Don't leave out Ash Fork on your next trip. The unassuming spot of a town leads right to a fabulous museum chock full of history. Totally worth the time. It is in the vacation center, which offers up a cool glass of water, restroom, some air conditioning and maps in you are in need.

“Definitely worth the time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2012

We stopped here on Rte. 66 just for a hoot and holler.

It was far more than we expected. Congratulations to the Ash Forkians for putting together a fascinating exhibit. These folks really care about their town and its history.

I'm sure that kids would have just as much fun as adults. The docent was pleasant and pretty well informed.

Worth visiting twice.

“Be sure to stop here on Rt. 66 !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2012

This small museum is a must see! Your kids will love the walk-in jail, the stenographer at work, the old fire truck, the dioramas and artifacts, etc, etc. Free, they encourage you to use their bathrooms and the docent is lovely, welcoming and informative. Easy to find! Right near the train station in Williams that takes you tot he Grand Canyon. Makes yesterday come alive! And it is FREE!

“Excellent history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2012

Spend a few minutes here and learn about this town's heyday. A huge building filled with everything from an old jail cell to Harvey House china. The elderly lady working there was super friendly and an Ash Fork native full of stories.
