If you’re heading to the Oracle State Park on a Saturday, why not stop first at the Acadia Ranch Museum in Oracle and take a guided tour?

Guided tours of the historic Acadia Ranch Museum have been scheduled every Saturday by Oracle Historical Society.

The 45-minute Saturday tours start at 12:30 p.m. There is no admission charge for visiting the museum, which is open 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays. It is located at 825 E. Mt. Lemmon Highway, just off American Ave. in the center of Oracle.  

The ranch house was built in the 1880s and used over the years as headquarters for a sheep ranch, boarding house, health resort, post office, and family home. It was named the Acadia after the settlement in Nova Scotia where the original family had lived. Purchased by the historical society in 1978, the Acadia features an original kitchen, displays of native American artifacts, diorama of Oracle in 1912, a variety of themed vintage photographs of Oracle people involved in their everyday pursuits, and many other informative exhibits.

Special group tours can be scheduled at other times by calling the museum at 520-896-9609. Information is also available at www.OracleHistoricalSociety.org.
