Phoenix As A Town May Be Young But It Has Rich History

Many who have moved to phoenix know it as the sprouting urban capital of Arizona. On a yearly basis Phoenicians see it's growth through the new massive planned communities being built, the network of freeways reaching further and further through the valley, and the delightful inconvenience of a new lane being added to our daily commute. So it's hard for us to imagine a time only 40 years ago when this city was merely a small town in the middle of the desert between the two coasts. Or even further back when settlers of European descent had yet to set foot on the soil, back to a time when the Native People of the Southwest ruled the land. However, that history is not lost in the modern hustle and bustle of Phoenix. There are two exhibits that you can visit to dive back into the times before the European settlers. 


The Heard museum is in the heart of downtown Phoenix and displays artwork and clothing that were made by the Native Americans living in Arizona.  It is a great learning experience for kids and people of all ages. Admission is $18 for adults and 7.50 for children. Click the Link to Learn More.


And if you're looking to go waaayyy back about 800 to 5,000 years ago to view some art Deer Valley Rock Art Center is the place for you. There is a little bit of a nature walk so I recommend going in the cooler seasons, but you get to see more than 1,500 petroglyphs made by ancient peoples of Arizona. This new exhibit will re-open in Spring of this year so it will be something to be on the lookout for! Click the Link to Learn More.
