ProvenanceF058a
In April of 1970 the museum opened its doors for visitors. The Museum, a largely volunteer organization, represents the dedication and generosity from the people in Cave Creek & Carefree. It is a pleasure to present the pre-history and history of peoples living life in the north desert foothills. We are proud to announce that the Cave Creek Museum has gone solar.
