Cave Creek Museum proudly presents the desert foothills as the spectacle of historic and prehistoric dimensions the region has to offer. Set in the shadow of looming Black Mountain, the Museum offers a view to the past. Thousands of years ago, Hohokam farmers dug 2,000 miles of irrigation canals to water their crops. Tools, pottery, jewelry, and other artifacts in the Museum collection give insight into these productive, innovative people.

 In the late 1800s, people returned again to farm, ranch and prospect for gold, silver, copper, jasper and other mineral riches. See the implements, home goods and special exhibits describing the lives and experiences of our most recent predecessors. The Golden Reef Stamp Mill is currently being restored and is set for operation in the fall of 2013. 

 The first church of Cave Creek and the last tubercular cabin in the state, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, and the Golden Reef Stamp Mill are among the outside exhibits.

Cave Creek Museum Docents share anecdotes and additional information to enrich the extensive exhibits and your experience---or enjoy the Museum on your own.

The spectacular history of the Desert Foothills is yours to see and enjoy at the Cave Creek Museum.
