Bringing Our Past to Life by Preserving Our Local History
With a focus on local history, The Buckeye Valley Museum contains an impressive collection of pre-Columbian pottery, historic photographs, and local artifacts from the earliest days of Buckeye. It is a great place to come learn and connect with the rich and vibrant history of the Buckeye Valley.
Established by I.H. Parkman in 1954, the museum was run by the Buckeye Valley Historical and Archaeological Society along with countless volunteers. Over the years the museum has seen many changes as the Historical Society added two large gallery rooms onto the original building. Exhibit spaces were continuously remodeled and new exhibits were created to bring new life to our shared history. In 2007, the city of Buckeye took over operations of the Museum and in 2014 an extensive remodel of the museum was undertaken.
