The Old Trails Museum accepts objects, documents, photographs, textiles, and oral histories related to the history and cultures of Winslow, Arizona, and the surrounding area. Generous donations from both current and former Winslow residents allow us to create permanent and rotating exhibits and publications that authentically represent Winslow’s diverse history. If you would like to donate to the OTM Collections, download and fill out the OTM-WHS Deed of Gift Agreement and OTM-WHS Donor Form. You can mail your donation and forms to the museum or drop them off in person. The museum no longer accepts loans. (Above: Washington School was built on West Oak in 1917 and replaced with the Washington Elementary “Dome” School in 1981.)
The Old Trails Museum conducts oral histories once a month to add to the OTM Oral History Collection. We invite current and former Winslow residents to share their stories with us, and the OTM Oral History Handout provides an overview of the process.
If you’d like to archive your family history at the Old Trails Museum, download and fill out the OTM Biographical Record and drop it off or mail it to the museum. This form is also an excellent complement to an oral history interview.
Thank you for sharing your history with us!
