The Paso Real, a great example of a real stagecoach Inn that existed on the banks of the Arroyo Colorado. Relive the experience of buying a ticket for a long trip on a stagecoach, renting a room for the night before moving on, and send a letter to cousin Mary, telling her of your run-ins with Bandits.



Visitors will view a doctor’s office, reception room, operating room, pharmacy, two patients’ room, library, a birthing room and two baths. Authentic medical equipment, furniture and clothing complete this recreation of an early Twentieth Century hospital.
