The Old Trails Museum’s 2016 historical calendar, Railroad Town: The Santa Fe Railway in Winslow, is now available for $10 at the museum, the Arizona 66 Trading Company, La Posada Hotel, On the Corner Gifts, the Scoop, the Winslow Chamber of Commerce, and Winslow Dental.
This 2016 edition serves as a companion to OTM’s new permanent exhibit, The Story of Winslow, which debuted on the museum floor in August 2015. The exhibit text panels are spread throughout the museum and tell the overall history of the town alongside images and artifacts donated by decades of museum supporters.
In this calendar, excerpts from the railroad-related panels are paired with images that have never before been published in an OTM book, exhibit, or calendar. Additional text was adapted from Winslow, the museum’s Images of America title. Sources for additional Santa Fe Railway history included documents from the museum’s archival collections; articles from the Winslow Mail; and the BNSF brochure, History and Legacy: The History of BNSF: A Legacy for the 21st Century.
OTM Director Ann-Mary Lutzick developed the calendar, and the Print Raven of Flagstaff did the graphic design and printing. Thanks to Helen Jane Pollard for loaning her wonderful photos; otherwise, all images are from the Old Trails Museum Collection.
The calendar is once again a fundraiser for the museum thanks to our generous advertisers: Arizona 66 Trading Company, Bojos Grill & Sports Club, Casey’s Hardware, Cross U Management Company, Dominique’s On the Corner, Joe’s Glass and Locksmith Shop, La Posada Hotel, the Leavitt Group, Mojo Coffee Company, Robert & Clint Cox Automotive Service, The Scoop Advertising, Snowdrift Art Space, and the Winslow Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center.
Still priced at $10, the calendar makes a great holiday gift! OTM will be open through Christmas Eve from 10 am to 3 pm every day (except Sundays and Mondays). Your OTM Store purchases are sales-tax-free, support the museum, and keep your shopping dollars local!
