High Desert Heritage Museum & Visitor Center

This past weekend, Sharon and I went to the 2nd Anniversary Open House Celebration for the High Desert Heritage Museum and Visitor Center.  We had a wonderful time and met lots of interesting people.  Sharon and I spoke on our ghostly experiences (mostly Sharon) along with others talking about the center.  We were entertained by the very talented Paul T. Morris (post about him is next), had a raffle to raise money (I won a scorpion made from copper wire with patina), and they served a tasty lunch of brats and potato salad.  They want to eventually build a larger museum and educate on the history and preservation of the Upper Agua Fria River Watershed.  They also have lots of handmade items and jewelry for sale along with books.

The High Desert Heritage Museum and Visitor Information Center is located in Yavapai County, AZ, on south Highway 69 between Phoenix and Prescott, off Interstate 17 and in Cordes Junction.  They are "dedicated to preserving the heritage of the upper Agua Fria Watershed".

This is what they state on their Facebook page: 
"The mission of the High Desert Heritage Museum, Inc. is to instill understanding and appreciation of the prehistory and cultural history in the Upper Agua Fria River Watershed in Arizona's Central Mountain Transition Zone. The Museum currently serves as a southern gateway to Yavapai County, Cordes Lakes, Spring Valley, Mayer, the Bradshaw Mountains, Dewey, Humboldt, Prescott Valley, Prescott and beyond. Visitors can come to our facility to get maps and directions, brochures, visit our Gift Shop, see our displays and visit our Archives & Library."

This was just amazing.  It was created with every kind of metal pieces of junk, cutlery, tools, kitchen items and vehicle parts.

Our books were for sale along with freebies.
