Exhibit runs through March 29, 2020
New museum exhibit showcases unique history of Mill Avenue
Saloons of the 1890s equipped with horse-parking, Gila monster hotel fights and parades that embraced diversity long before Tempe was a city or Arizona a state. Discover these stories and many more at Tempe History Museum’s new feature exhibit, Walking Mill Avenue.
Tempe’s Mill Avenue District has always been a place of change, reinvention and even contention. Yet it remains the heart of our community. In many ways the epicenter of Tempe, the history, people and places of Mill Avenue weave together in complex layers that show us where Tempe has been and where it might be headed.
