The Unique Village In Arizona Where Time Stands Still
Sometimes it can be difficult to imagine what life must have been like for our ancestors. Time makes old lifestyles seem so far removed until you realize that it is just a few short generations separating you from a time when people were more in tune with their surroundings and life for most focused on basic subsistence.
There is at least one place here in Arizona where you can find an example of that old way of living from the American settler perspective.
Pioneer Living History Museum is located at 3901 West Pioneer Road in Phoenix. You can find information about the exhibits, booking a field trip, and more by visiting their website, pioneeraz.org.
