The Arizona Humanities Council selected the Old Trails Museum in Winslow as one of six rural organizations to host the upcoming tour of the Smithsonian exhibition Journey Stories.

As the grand opening site on the statewide tour, Winslow will host the exhibition at its partner venue, La Posada Hotel, from June 22 through Aug. 4, 2013. Other host communities include Springerville, Kingman, Florence, Patagonia and Sierra Vista.

Host sites will develop their own exhibits and programs that tell local stories that relate to the themes in the Smithsonian exhibition.

Journey Stories explores the roles that migration, travel and modes of transportation have played in American society. The museum's local exhibit, Journeys to Winslow and its related programs will explore the many connections Winslow has to this theme, including the Santa Fe Railroad, Harvey Girls, Route 66 and the Lindbergh-designed airport.

The Old Trails Museum invites participation by any and all interested individuals and community organizations and hopes to inspire the latter to develop new or to dovetail existing programming for Winslow's tour stop.

The next community-wide meeting is at 5 p.m. Nov. 27, at the Winslow Visitors Center/Hubbell Trading Post, 523 W. Second St. The meeting will include a brief project orientation, an update on plans for Winslow's tour stop, and volunteer organizing into sub-committees to start planning what each one will accomplish.

More information on the project is available at the museum's website at, or from Museum Director Ann-Mary Lutzick at or (928) 289-5861.

The Old Trails Museum is owned and operated by the Winslow Historical Society, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. The museum receives, preserves, and interprets information and artifacts representing the history and cultures of the Winslow area, in order to engage and enlighten all visitors to the museum's exhibits and programs.

Located at 212 Kinsley Ave., in the heart of Winslow's historic business district and across from the Standin' on the Corner Park, the Old Trails Museum is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. from April through November, and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. from December through March. Admission is free, and photography, group tours, and research opportunities are available. There is free parking downtown, and the museum's exhibits are wheelchair accessible.
