The goal of the Maricopa Historical Society is to
inspire our citizens to take the historical foundation of
the old Maricopa, with its rich diverse heritage, and
build upon it with the dynamic energy of the present
to create a thread of commonality that fosters a
strong sense of identity and community spirit among
all of its citizens. We aim to do this through oral and
written histories, speakers, exhibits, activities, and
programs that ignite the imagination and bring history
alive for students of all ages.
