The rich history of Scottsdale comes alive in the photos and exhibits in the two-room, Little Red Schoolhouse, now Scottsdale’s official historic museum. From our founder Winfield Scott to fabled Mayor Herb Drinkwater, from the pioneers who built Scottsdale’s canals and early farms, to the modern era developers of our neighborhoods, schools, shopping malls, ballparks and airport, visitors will learn about our city’s past and present.
