Pioneer and Indian Artifacts
“Pioneer and Indian Artifacts Collection
Pioneer and Indian Artifacts Collection. When the elevator was installed there was a facelift done to the old janitors storage area. One of the improvements was the installation of the unique tile floor installed by two of our volunteers at the time, Shirley and Carol Wilson. The Wilsons integrated some arrowheards and Indian designs into the beautiful floor. The original rock foundation has been left exposed.
The artifacts section in the basement level consists of items from the Old Payson Milling Company Flour Mill, farm tools, antique road signs, photos of famous individuals from Western History, antique dolls and furniture. Room A on the main floor also has numerous examples of antique tools.
The Indian section of the area contains many examples of Indian artifacts. There examples of Indian pottery, arrowheads, wall hangings and various other Indian artifacts.
Many visitors that have viewed the exhibits at Peteetneet have said, “This museum is the best kept secret in Payson.” Let’s not keep it a secret anymore. Mark your calendars for a visit to the museum and be pleasantly surprised. The museum open for tours from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM every Monday through Friday. The last tour begins at 3:00 PM. Come and meet our volunteer tour guides and learn about our heritage.
