Sharlot Hall Museum
The Sharlot Hall Museum of Prescott opened in 1928 by Sharlot M. Hall as the Old Governor's Mansion Museum. Today, the museum features seven historic buildings, compelling exhibits and beautiful gardens, which serve as the setting for numerous public festivals. The Library and Archives, open to the public, hold a vast collection of rare books, original documents, historical photographs, maps and oral history. The Sharlot Hall Theater offers an historical lecture series and music events in support of our Folk Music festival in October, and the Museum's Living History programs bring the past alive through hands-on demonstrations.
