Maps of Early Phoenix
February 28, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Drawing on his private collection of early maps, historian John Southard will share stories of early Phoenix and its development. John will take us through the early days of the City and Territory and dispel myths like the State’s southern border is on a slant because the surveyors got lost heading to Yuma. This talk is held in conjunction with our Mapping Early Phoenix exhibit which will be open for tours that evening.
Discounted parking in the Heritage Garage with validation.
