Sharlot Hall Museum

Founded in 1928, Sharlot Hall Museum is proud to be one of the best museums in Northern Arizona. The Museum is open year round and offers self-guided and guided tours of nine buildings with numerous exhibits. Included here are territorial Arizona's 1863 Fort Misery, the 1864 Territorial Governor's Mansion, the 1875 Fremont House, the 1877 Bashford House, a 1930's ranch house, the 1934 Sharlot Hall Building, the Transportation Building constructed in 1936 and a replica of an 1867 schoolhouse. The Museum Store offers unique gifts and jewelry and an outstanding history book selection. Across the street, the Museum Archives house hundreds of thousands of records important to Arizona's amazing history. The shady Museum grounds include the Territorial Women's Memorial Rose Garden, a delightful array of flora and fauna, a beautiful gazebo and the perfect historic setting for weddings and other events. Four major events are hosted each year as well as lectures, book signings, living history programs and other special gatherings. The annual Folk Arts Fair in June, the Prescott Indian Art Market in July, the Folk Music Festival in October and the Frontier Christmas in December have been a mainstay of downtown activities for decades. School groups and other organizations are always welcome at the Museum and receive special guided tours. The Museum also regularly participates in and hosts several community events and festivals.

The Museum also maintains the historic Fort Whipple Museum at the Bob Stump VA Medical Center with displays and regular programs. Museum founder Sharlot M. Hall moved to the Prescott area as a girl in 1882. In 1909 she was appointed Territorial Historian of Arizona and never gave up working towards her dream of creating a museum in Prescott. Prior to her death in 1943, Sharlot recorded her thoughts and aspirations through poetry, letters and other documents that today provide us with inspiration and a determination to carry on her dream.
