MUSEUMS IN GILA COUNTY
Gila County was created in 1881 from portions of Maricopa and Pinal counties, and later included part of Yavapai County.
Silver first attracted people to this area and soon became depleted, copper emerged and is still mined today.
Gila County is the home of the legendary Graham-Tewksbury feud, which began in the 1870s and lasted 15 years. It claimed dozens of lives and ignited tempers between cattle ranchers and sheep ranchers for years to come.
It is also home to pioneers, loggers, ranching families, miners, Native Americans, famous cowboys and outlaws.
Below is a list of museums that have documented and captured many of the stories, photos and culture of Gila County's early people. A visit to Gila County would not be complete without a history lesson for you and your family.
