Description: The Arizona Historical Society (AHS) is a non-profit organization whose goal is to
collect, preserve, interpret, and disseminate the history of Arizona, the West, and Northern
Mexico as it pertains to Arizona. It does this through 4 regional divisions. Each division has a
representative museum. The state-wide divisions are as follows: Southern Arizona Division in
Tucson, the Central Arizona Division in Tempe, the Northern Arizona Division in Flagstaff, and the
Rio Colorado Division in Yuma. It was founded by the territorial legislature on November 7, 1864.
The Arizona Historical Society was founded as the Society of Arizona Pioneers. With a new
railroad being built and change on its way to Tucson, Arizona, pioneers worried that their stories
of battles with the desert heat and the Apaches would be lost forever. The society was founded to
preserve these stories and provide charitable service work to the local community as a mutual
aid society. Original Historical Society members were often prominent members of the community,
and their tasks with the society included attending funerals and raising money to help out widows.
