Built in 1911 as Williams High School, the school was
open to graduating classes from 1912 to 1956. Some
alumni include jazz musician Turk Murphy, of San
Francisco’s Earthquake McGoon’s fame, Kenneth Zumwalt,
Editor of Stars and Stripes military publication during
WWII and the Fouch Family of pharmacists, who served the
Williams community for over a century. In 1963 the
building transitioned into an impressive regional museum
full of special exhibits in a most unique setting, a
true step back into time, featuring late 19th and early
20th century local memorabilia.
The Museum is open March through mid November,
Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 10am to 4pm and by
Appointment. The Museum is closed for the winter. In
addition to normal operation hours, the museum is
available for rent. Host your meetings, Plays, Parties
