Join the Sharlot Hall Museum and VA staff and volunteers as we celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the opening of the Fort Whipple Museum. On May 17 from 12 PM-2PM, the Fort Whipple Museum will celebrate its anniversary with refreshments and interpreters from the Sharlot Hall Museum’s Living History program. Remarks are scheduled for 1 pm.

After a long hiatus, the museum has finally reopened and this event will celebrate both its reopening and its anniversary. Come and learn about the rich history of the US military in central Arizona, the establishment of Fort Whipple, and its evolution into the current Bob Stump Veterans Administration Hospital. Fort Whipple has been a key part of the development of the Prescott area, bringing people, medicine, and new technology to Prescott.

Join us for this event and celebrate the reopening of this central Arizona treasure. Regular hours for the Fort Whipple Museum are Fridays from 10PM-4PM, admission is free and no appointment is necessary. For group tours, please contact the Sharlot Hall Museum.
