Built in 1921, the Old Trails Museum building originally housed a series of financial institutions. Western Savings and Loan donated the building to the Navajo County Historical Society in 1985, and after four years of building improvements, OTM held its grand opening in July 1989. The bank’s original marble-faced counters, mosaic tile floor, and vault provide a historic backdrop for the museum’s exhibits and collections.
The museum building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as part of the Winslow Commercial Historic District in 1989 and on its own in 2020. OTM is also featured on the “Historic Winslow” Walking Tour, a partnership between the Winslow Historic Preservation Commission and the Winslow Public Library. Visitors to Winslow’s historic downtown can reach the museum’s walking-tour page by scanning the QR code in the OTM Front Window.
Visitors enjoy the OTM Store, which specializes in regional Navajo and Hopi arts and crafts, local and regional history books, and our annual historical calendar featuring images of Winslow’s history. You can also purchase any publication by mail (add shipping; check made out to Old Trails Museum), or online using our secure OTM Online Store, where you can also find detailed descriptions of each publication.
