The mission of the Historical League, Inc. is to support the Arizona Historical Society and the Arizona Historical Society Museum in Papago Park in Tempe, Arizona by contributing the services of its members, securing and allocating resources, and conducting informational and promotional activities.

A Center for History and Learning


If you are someone who loves Arizona and its history, joining the Historical League may be right for you. Our organization is very social in nature and we feature lectures from historical experts at our monthly meeting, held the first Monday of each month. In addition, our members travel to historic sites and museums all over the state, as well as out-of-state trips to visit historic sites.

Our fundraising event this year partners us with Phoenix Theatre. To purchase your tickets at $60 or $80 each for Mary Poppins and benefit the Historical League, go to  http://tickets.phoenixtheatre.com/single/SYOS.aspx?p=4992       More info under Upcoming Events - Mary Poppins Holiday Fundraiser.
The Historical League has partnered with the Audrey Johnson Theatre Foundation to allow for people to donate tickets for children served by such charities as UMOM, Ryan house, Big Brothers/Big Sisters etc. To donate tickets, please send a check payable to Phoenix Theatre for the number of tickets and mail to the Historical League, Mary Poppins Charity Tickets, 1300 N College Ave, Tempe, AZ 85281.  Donating tickets will both provide a fun holiday event for deserving disadvantaged children and help support the important education and preservation work of AHS Museum at Papago Park.
