The Old Trails Museum is owned and operated by the Winslow Historical Society, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation funded primarily by the City of Winslow, with additional support from memberships, donations, and gift shop sales.
The Old Trails Museum is a member of the Winslow Chamber of Commerce, which along with La Posada Hotel (above, courtesy of La Posada), funded the development and printing of OTM’s logo and rack card. Along with the Winslow Arts Trust Museum, these organizations are ongoing partners for OTM’s public programs, providing space for the museum’s free public programs.
The Old Trails Museum has four collections on the Arizona Memory Project, the Arizona State Library’s online repository that allows researchers and the general public greater access to the unique collections of Arizona’s cultural institutions.
The Old Trail Museum regularly applies to Arizona Humanities to fund our special exhibits and History Highlights speaker series. As a member of the Arizona Historical Society’s Certified Museum Program, OTM is eligible for grant funding, workshops, technical support, and listing in their Arizona History Museum Guide.
The Old Trail Museum maintains memberships in state, regional, and national organizations that serve small history museums with training, networking, and advocacy: the Museum Association of Arizona, the Western Museums Association, the American Alliance of Museums, and the American Association of State and Local History.
The Old Trails Museum thanks the Winslow branch of Wells Fargo for our new website, which was paid for in part with a $2,500 Wells Fargo Community Grant that we received in March 2019, and web designer Nityia Przewlocki of Nityia Design in Seattle, Washington, for the great job she did on the update.
