Phoenix & North Arizona Exhibition Hall (Central & Northern Arizona)

The Phoenix & Northern, Arizona Exhibition Hall

This Phoenix & Northern Arizona Exhibition Hall focuses on the northern two-thirds of the current State of Arizona. Phoenix is its largest city. The cities and towns of Prescott, Flagstaff, Solomonville, Siligman, St. John’s, and Kingman all were part of the Jewish Pioneer period in Northern Arizona.

Arizona’s “Jewish European” history dates to the early days of the Spanish Conquest. Members of the Spanish army and many of the early Spanish colonists were “conversos,” Jews who had been forcibly converted to Christianity in Spain.
