  • This an interesting and well composed museum. It covers a wide section of information -- silver mining, Apache the original people, women's roles in Apache, Mexican, and white settlers, the great floods, the home's original owners, ranch life, the home's later uses, and so on. It gives great insight into the true Western experience. Great gift shop too.
