Founded in 1958, the Pinal County Historical Museum is the oldest historical organization in Pinal County. The museum preserves Florence and Pinal County’s rich history through exhibitions and educational programming. Additionally, the museum houses a large and diverse research collection from which exhibitions, programs, and events are created as well as opportunities for academic and community-based research.
Visit us and explore Florence’s rich history and diverse culture from precontact Native Americans known as the Hohokam through the centuries of local families who lived, worked, and went to school, enriching our collective stories. See fascinating displays including, cactus furniture, Florence’s Historic District, Second Territorial Prison, farm implements, and more!
