Old Town Scottsdale information
Tucked among the glitzy malls and chichi bistros is Old Town Scottsdale, a Wild West–themed enclave filled with cutesy buildings, covered sidewalks and stores hawking mass-produced 'Indian' jewelry and Western art. One building with genuine history is the 1909 Little Red School House, now home of the Scottsdale Historical Museum , where low-key exhibits highlight Scottsdale's origins and early history. Old Town is centered on Main St and Brown Ave.
In a cleverly adapted old movie theater, the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Arts showcases global art, architecture and design, including James Turrell's otherworldly Knight Rise skyspace in the sculpture garden. The museum is across from the local performing arts center.
