New Exhibits: Arizona Historical Society Celebrates 150 Years!

8 Sep

The Arizona Historical Society is celebrating its sesquicentennial this year, and there are some great pieces commemorating those one hundred and fifty years of collecting and preserving Arizona’s past on display at the Arizona History Museum in Tucson. The Arizona 150 exhibit showcases some of the staff member’s favorite 150 items ever collected by AHS and includes works of art, clothing, photographs, and objects from Arizona’s rich history.

The Library and Archives in Tucson has recently opened a new exhibit in the reading room with highlights from the Society’s 150-year history, including photographs of the first AHS buildings, founding members, and ephemera from a century and a half of celebrating Arizona’s history through events, exhibits, the Arizona History Convention, and many other unique traditions.
