The museum, 10801 W. Oakmont Drive, Sun City was awarded $2,000. The Arizona Historical Society presented $38,000 in grants to organizations throughout the state. This annual grant program supports preserving, interpreting and promoting Arizona history with certified historical institutions across the state.

“Congratulations to this year’s grant recipients. AHS is dedicated to connecting people through the power of Arizona’s history and supporting historical organizations across the state,” said Arizona Historical Society Executive Director Dr. James Burns. “The pandemic has continued to affect museums and historical societies, and these grants help support the ongoing preservation and sharing of Arizona’s rich history.”

This program is open to brick-and-mortar facilities as well as historical organizations that fulfill certain requirements related to the preservation and sharing of Arizona history.
