The Cave Creek Museum’s newly renovated History Wing (formerly the Pioneer Wing) is a look into the past and the future, telling familiar tales that people have heard in the past at the museum, and then expanding them from the 1860’s to present day. This covers Yavapai life into the eras of mining and ranching, to dude ranches and everything all the way up to the Ocotillo Fire. It serves as a visual explanation of how life has changed or not changed and how the people have enjoyed the same space for over 150 years.
A Perfect Place to Explore With Family
The Golden Reef Stamp Mill runs every second Saturday of the month, and the Kiwanis Family Sundays take place every second Sunday of the month and cover a variety of interesting topics.
“Kiwanis Family Sundays are a chance for kids to experience the Museum and participate in varying educational events,” noted Cave Creek Museum program coordinator Remington Pettus, “I want to encourage children of all ages to get a chance to learn, while making it fun!”
