The mission of the Arizona Historical Society is to collect, preserve, interpret, and disseminate the history of Arizona and the West. The resources held in trust by the Arizona Historical Society are the most comprehensive in scope---reflecting the history, development, and cultures of the state---available anywhere.
We work closely with the Arizona Capitol Museum. Planning a tour of our cemeteries and the capitol is convenient - we'll be happy to help! The Arizona Capitol Museum uses a balance of technology, hands-on activities, historical artifacts, and public programs to help visitors learn about and interact with the government of the 48th state.
Heritage Square is a striking reminder of the city’s vibrant Victorian past. Located on Block 14 of the original townsite of Phoenix, the Square dates back to the late 1800s, and the restored Rosson House Museum is its crowning jewel. Whether you love history, technology, good food, or just a quiet place to reflect – a visit to Heritage Square is for you!
Pioneers' Cemetery Association suggests you visit the Phoenix Police Museum on one of your visits downtown! Their purpose is to educate the public in the history of the Phoenix Police Department in historic and modern context in order to enhance the image of law enforcement; interact with the community through a positive learning environment; to promote and preserve the history of the department while building a closer relationship between the police department and community. The Museum provides a public location for an educational museum which is free for all.

The First Families of Arizona was founded in 1932 to preserve the heritage of Arizona's founding families. The organization's purpose is to preserve the historic relics, places and history of Arizona. The members of The First Families of Arizona remember the fortitude and stamina of the pioneer people who came to Arizona and whose character and ideas laid the foundation for the State. They seek to perpetuate the best of that heritage through our families and through the organization now and keep it alive for future generations. Membership is extended to individuals, their spouses and their direct descendants, whose pioneer ancestors arrived and established residence in territorial Arizona prior to Statehood Day, February 14, 1912.
The Maricopa County Justice Museum opened in 2012 and is centered around a restored cell block on the sixth floor of Maricopa County’s Historic old Courthouse – the Courthouse has been renovated to its 1929 grandeur. While visiting the museum, you will get a sense of Maricopa County’s legal history, its court cases and important elements of the Rule of Law, including individual rights and liberties guaranteed in the United States and Arizona constitutions. To our knowledge, it is the only such museum in an active courthouse in the country. The museum is located at 125 W. Wahington, Phoenix, AZ 85004.
Our thanks go out to the Phoenix Firebird and Desert Sage Chapters of Questers for their generous donation support of historic preservation! You can learn more about our friends of The Arizona State Questers through their website.
