Pioneer Living History Village
Approximately ninety acres in size, this North Phoenix monument to the traditional, Old West way of living in 1800’s Arizona first opened in 1965, with the help of U.S. senators and Cabinet members. As a whole, the village represents the diversity of Arizona from the time of the Spanish Conquistadores to the inception of statehood in 1912. Attractions include a blacksmith, rifle port, ranch complex, and a sheriff’s office with a jail. Costumed interpreters, such as cowboys and Victorian ladies, are typically on hand to answer questions and make the experience more authentic.
