Historical Society celebrates 150 with new exhibit

TUCSON- The Arizona Historical society was established in 1864 and it's no surprise that while most of us live for tomorrow, these folks have their eyes on the past.

And for this birthday milestone, the society elected the opportunity for staff across the state to help choose which 150 objects would go on display.

Some of which include a party favor from when American Aviator Charles Lindbergh flew to Tucson in the 1920s. And, according to Leslie Roe, Director of Arizona Historical Society, a gun that belonged to one of America's most well known lawman, Wyatt Earp.

"His wife held it after he passed on and we got it," Roe said. "Collectors say if you want to have a guaranteed one for Wyatt Earp, we have that."

The exhibit opens August 30th.
