Description

Walking through the over 125 horse-drawn vehicles on display one can easily trace their importance in developing the motor driven vehicles to follow. Our goal is to further develop this concept to help make it more easily comprehended.

Mission

To maintain a snapshot of life in Southern Arizona in the late 1800's.

History

Open since 1964 the Museum grew out of our acquisition of horse-drawn vehicles used in our annual parade.
