Cave Creek Museum Presents: “The History of Spur Cross Ranch”


On Saturday, April 13, 2024 from 2-4 PM, Cave Creek Museum Presents will host “The History of Spur Cross Ranch.”

Nelson’s presentations are filled with information and humor. And, his workshops are among the most popular of the Cave Creek Museum Presents series.
