Institution Type: Museum, Visitor Center



Thanks to the efforts of St. Johns’ lifetime residents Dewey and Esther Farr, and many others, the Apache County Historical Society Museum opened its’ doors more than 45 years ago.  It holds a comprehensive selection of historical relics and is well worth return visits by residents, visitors, tourist, and their families or organizations.

The museum has a surprisingly large breadth of artifacts depicting life in Apache County as the Apache, Hopi, Navajo and Zuni tribes, and Hispanic and Mormon settlers clashed and meshed throughout the history of our communities.  These displays include arrowheads, firearms, written histories, diaries, photographs, tools, musical instruments, household items, and dioramas representing the daily lives of our diverse cultures.
