Learn more about the history of the area near your Litchfield Park real estate by visiting the Litchfield Park Historical Society and Museum. The museum is located at 13912 Camelback Road in Litchfield Park in the historic site called ‘Aunt Mary’s House.’ This building is part of the original Rancho La Loma estate that was built by Paul Weeks Litchfield. Find exhibits about the early days of Litchfield Park in two of the rooms and check out rotating exhibits in the other two rooms. Also browse the archives, which have photos, letters, records, films, oral history interviews, and much more. Admission to the museum is free and the hours change based on the season.

Be sure to stop in at the museum gift shop. There are books, notecards, and small gift items available for purchase. Read the story of Mexican-Americans in Litchfield Park, find a self-guided walking tour of Litchfield Park, miniature kachinas, Litchfield Park Centennial Copper Commemorative Coins, unique Southwest gifts, and much more.
Plans are also in the works to move the museum into the historic Litchfield/Denny house, which is located at the top of the hill behind the current museum. This will provide a larger space for the museum, archive library, and even be a place for those living in Litchfield Park homes to gather together. It will be truly exciting to utilize the 21 acres of this property.
