History and community blended into the very best Prescott has to offer. No matter what is on tap, SH delivers and at a level hardly ever seen at a small town level. What ever they do be it crafts, music, kids, information they do it a a price and in a way that makes it worth the visit!
Don't miss any of their events or tours, it will be worth you time!

Great history of the state of Arizona, important women in Arizona's history, life of the people in the Prescott area from 1600's to now.

Walked in not expecting much since it's a small town, was pleasantly surprised and spent about three hours there.

If you walk in expecting the Natural History Museum of Chicago you will be disappointed, if you walk in anticipating a nice walk around the property and learning about life in Prescott Valley you'll enjoy this.

Well worth your money. We spent several hours looking at the exhibits and listening to music. For the Western Heritage Days they had a fashion show featuring styles of dress in the olden days. Very well done.
