This historic building is the Pimeria Alta Historical Society and Museum in Nogales, Arizona. Its signature clock tower is a Nogales landmark, and the building itself holds a lot of history.

Built in 1914, the building was the Nogales City Hall and jail (the jail facility is still intact and on display in the museum), as well as housing the town’s fire department. The exit where the horse-drawn fire engine exited from the building still exists, with doors that lead from the original fire station to the street.

The museum features a variety of artifacts from Nogales history, from an original fire wagon to relics from prominent Nogales citizens. Entry is free of charge (although contributions are always welcome).

The museum is an interesting glimpse into the past of this historic border town, and a must-see for visitors to the area.
