Pimeria Alta Historical Society Museum

Housed in the Old Nogales City Hall (c. 1914), the exhibits and collections of the Pimeria Alta Museum center on the history of southern Arizona and northern Sonora, Mexico.

The museum has a research library that includes archives of local newspapers; three rare murals by renowned bullfighter and artist, Salvador Corona; and an extensive photography display on Camp Little, home of the Buffalo soldiers, and life on the border.

Visitors can tour the old jail cells, view the hand-drawn and hand-operated pumper fire truck known as, "Able and Willing" and peruse displays that will lead to an appreciation of the long and fascinating history of the area.
