OUR MISSION: The mission of the Scottsdale Historical Society is to present, preserve, and interpret through research, exhibits, and educational programming, the prehistory, history, and cultural heritage of Scottsdale and the Southwest.
The Scottsdale Historical Society is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization that serves as the primary historical resource for the greater Scottsdale community. Our goals are to promote community awareness of the rich and varied history of Scottsdale and serve as the principle curator of historical records and artifacts. In partnership with the city of Scottsdale, the Society serves as the operating entity for the Scottsdale Historical Museum in the Little Red Schoolhouse. The Society connects with other historical organizations and resources in the greater Scottsdale area and the state of Arizona, providing a forum for discussion, exploration and refinement of the history of Scottsdale and its closely related environs.
