The Patagonia Museum, incorporated in 2004, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to collecting and preserving the culture and history of eastern Santa Cruz County.
Visitors to the Sky Islands are invited to tour the original Patagonia Elementary School built in 1914 and retrofitted to be the home of the Patagonia Museum in 2016.
A rotating series of displays based on ranching, mining and the railroad industries reflecting Patagonia’s rich history & culture are featured in the original classrooms.
Photos of Patagonia “Then & Now” remains one of our visitors favorite displays:
