Living History

The Sharlot Hall Museum’s Living History program brings Prescott’s territorial period to life, with a historical focus on 1870-1880.

What was daily life on the Arizona frontier like? Living History interpreters connect visitors with the past as they demonstrate historic livelihoods and lifestyles. Guests are invited to step into the Ranch House, Schoolhouse, Print Shop, and more as they discover the story of Prescott in a fresh way.

The Living History Adventure is held the second Saturday of the month, April-October. With a different theme each month, hands-on activities for kids make sure that younger visitors can connect with history on their level! With activities, games, and crafts to take home, there is something for all ages.

If you would like to become a volunteer Living History interpreter, please contact volunteer coordinator Dani Schulze. For questions or comments about the Living History program, please contact education program manager Jenny Pederson.
