The Navajo County Historical Society

Located on
Old Route 66
in Holbrook, AZ


Historic Courthouse
Official Arizona Visitor Information Center

Holbrook, Arizona

WELCOME to the place to explore the legacy given to Holbrook, Arizona, and neighboring areas from its early residents, which is sure to evoke memories of grandma, your home town, or growing up in a different era.

The Navajo County Historical Society maintains a diversified collection in the Historic Courthouse, 100 E. Arizona Street and Navajo Blvd., that, by the way is Old Route 66 before the days of the Interstate.

The museum is referred to as being the peoples' museum, because it represents the early lives of different cultures, settlers, ranchers, homemakers, teachers, government officials, bankers, mercantile proprietors, and other businessmen and women.

Over the decades many have called Holbrook and the surrounding area home, and they all have left their mark in history. The museum’s collections and exhibits are made up of items that these citizens owned or used during their lifetimes.

People established our communities, and their stories are being told through the objects, photos or documents that have come into the museum.

You are invited to stop by and step into the past, and perhaps even wordlessly thank these early residents for sharing their memories with you.

The Museum and official Arizona Visitors’ Center are open daily from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and closed holidays. Admission is free and donations are welcome.
