Stinson Museum


category : Museums
When the Flakes entered the Silver Creek Valley, they found two adobe structures that had been erected by James Stinson, owner of the ranch. Eventually, the two structures were joined together into one continuous building that visitors see today as the Stinson Museum.

The museum houses artifacts and pictures from the early days of Snowflake, from prehistoric Indians to 19th century pioneers. Included on display is the loom used by Lucy Hannah Flake to weave cloth and rag rugs. Two rooms have been restored to depict the living conditions of the early pioneer families.

Visitors are encouraged to stop by the Stinson Museum, where Museum Curator Amber Faith brings the history of Snowflake and Taylor alive through her colorful accounts of the stories that capture the human spirit of the people--along with their personal sacrifices and successes--that help us appreciate what the region is today.
