SPECIAL COMING EVENT

 

Oral Histories with Jim Turner

March 9th, 2016 - 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

Come join us to learn how to conduct Oral Histories. Jim Turner, formally with the Arizona Historical Society, will provide information on how to conduct Oral Histories. One of the best ways to preserve the past is to record the memories of family and friends who have lived in the community and have many stories to tell about the "good ole days". Presentation is open to the public, just call to let us know how many plan to attend.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

We are a private non-profit organization originally founded in 1959 as a countywide museum. Our current home was built in 1970. The museum has numerous exhibits of native Americans, day to day life in early Florence, prison artifacts, and an extensive Library of Arizona and the southwest. In addition, extensive records are available for research on families as well as history of the area. Our staff will assist with onsite research.

 

You will find outstanding Indian exhibits, extensive bullet and barbed wire collections, cactus furniture, quilts and antique clothing, prison artifacts including hanging nooses, two-seater gas chamber chair, and prison registers. There is an outdoor display of antique farm machinery, a blacksmith shop, 1928 Pioneer Cabin, and vintage fire engines.

 

Visit our "Reference Library" as we are proud to have over 1000 books about the people, history, flora and fauna of the region, Arizona Highways Magazine dating back to 1937 and archives including documents, letters and photographs.

 

Soon to be published is The Tom Mix Cord: Saga of a Western Film Star’s Classic Motorcar by Bob White. Bob is a generous supporter of the Museum. Check under “Links of Interest” to find out how you can obtain more information.

 

Mission Statement:

 

To collect, preserve, interpret and disseminate relevant and historically significant materials pertaining to the southwest with emphasis on Pinal County, and especially Florence and to develop and maintain ethical, effective and efficient standards in carrying out these endeavors for the benefit of present and future generations.
