Navajo County Historical Society

Eastern Arizona

The 1898 county courthouse is home to an eclectic assortment of historical local exhibits as well as Holbrook's chamber of commerce and visitor center. Each room of the museum highlights a different aspect of Holbrook's history – a creepy highlight is the old county jail, where the windowless cells were still being used as recently as 1976.
