Pioneer Museum (Flagstaff)

Pioneer Museum (Flagstaff)

The Pioneer Museum in Flagstaff is located in the historic Coconino County Hospital for the Indigent. The Hospital was built in 1908 using pumiceous dacite from the Mount Elden Explosive Eruption about 500,000 years ago. The building was used as a hospital until 1938 and was considered a Poor Farm. The exhibits within the museum reflect the history of Flagstaff and northern Arizona. Visitors will learn of the local history of ranching, logging, transportation and life in Pioneer Flagstaff. Festivals and events are also held on the grounds including the annual Wool and Fiber Festival, the Folk Festival and the Heritage Festival.

Above and Beyond: Arizona and the Medal of Honor
Between 1862 and 1889, some 157 United States Army officers and enlisted men serving in today’s Arizona received the nation’s highest military decoration for valor. Since that time, these Medal of Honor recipients, including eleven Apache scouts, would be joined by five of Arizona’s other native sons. The story of bravery under fire is told in this exciting new exhibit on display through October 25, 2015, and included with museum admission.
