The Postal History Foundation

The Postal History Foundation has the only formal museum and library in the Southwest dedicated to U.S. Western postal history. It celebrates the historical settlement of the West through the remarkable stories of the Pony Express,historic postal stations and the railroads. Its collections, photographs and artifacts are unique to this often-overlooked part of American history. The Postal History Foundation was one of the first organizations to reach out to the asthmatic children who were sent to Arizona for health reasons over 40 years ago. Our volunteers saw that these children were removed from traditional school settings and brought the world of stamps and postal history directly to them.  Thus began its nationally-recognized Philatelic Youth Education Program, which continues to operate today. The Foundation is a treasure-trove of millions of postage stamps and educational materials for youth which open infinite doors to learning!
