Happy Holidays from the Old Trails Museum! The museum will be closed December 23 through January 1, to give our dedicated volunteers a much deserved break. We’ll re-open on Wednesday, January 2, 2013, and we hope to see you in the new year!
Author Jo Baeza is at Old Trails Museum today, December 5, from 11 to 3 p.m. to sign her new book, Arizona: The Making of a State, which would make a great Christmas gift for the history-lover in your life! The book is a collection of “100 stories for 100 years” that appeared in weekly installments in the White Mountain Independent as an Arizona Centennial Legacy Project. Baeza lives in the White Mountains and contributes to the White Mountain Independent and Arizona Highways. Her 1964 book, Ranch Wife, published under the name Jo Jeffers, was designated one of the best 100 books about Arizona by the Journal of Arizona History.
The Old Trails Museum explores the history and cultures of Winslow, Arizona, and the surrounding area.
