At the base of Black Mountain, is a handsome Southwest style building – the Cave Creek Museum. Its roots are embedded in the pioneer traditions of neighbor helping neighbor. Begun as an historical society in 1968 by a small group of volunteers, the Museum took form when land was donated by Frank and Hazel Wright, and the old Episcopal Church was relocated to that site. Donations and gifts of local historical significance poured in.
In April of 1970 the museum opened its doors for visitors. The Museum, a largely volunteer organization, represents the dedication and generosity from the people in Cave Creek & Carefree. It is a pleasure to present the pre-history and history of peoples living life in the north desert foothills.
Nestled in the beautiful Sonoran Foothills of Cave Creek, the Grace Museum was established by the legendary icon, Grace Voss Fredericks. One of the first women on television, she participated in many aspects of the entertainment industry including radio, Broadway, Vaudeville, etc.
She loved her Country and dedicated her Museum to its progress over the past 200 years. Enjoy the nostalgic history of her collections of Americana with a guided approximate 2-1/2 hour tour. Tours are by appointment only and groups need to be four or more persons.
