At the museum you can explore and learn via two galleries about the educational facilities; daily living; early beginnings and families of this humble community; William R. Norton & his development of the Sunny Slope Townsite; the significant roles of the Desert Mission, and later, John C. Lincoln Hospital, played in the community as well as the burgeoning businesses that have helped keep Sunnyslope viable to this day.
