Are you interested in researching and preserving your family history? Do you want to know the story of your home or neighborhood? Do you know someone who has a passion for southern Arizona history?

More than 15 organizations are coming together to present the Southern Arizona Archives Bazaar on Saturday, November 3, 11 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Arizona History Museum, 949 E. 2nd St. The event is free and open to the public.  Free parking is available at Main Gate Garage.
