True Women of the West
Let’s face it. Women of the West are a breed apart. Whether they are born here or arrive later, they seem to have a spirit that just comes with the territory. Call it part drive, part resourcefulness, part staying power, but more than anything else it’s a force to be reckoned with, one that has put women at the heart of all that has happened in the West from the beginning ... and at the heart of all that has happened at our museum ... nearly from the beginning.​

Bucking Up in the Early Years​
As it turns out, it all began with a rescue. In 1974, a devastating fire destroyed the original Desert Caballeros Western Museum and all appeared to be lost. That’s when founder H.K. “Mac” MacLennan came up with the idea of asking the strong women of Wickenburg to help raise funds and provide volunteers. It didn’t take long for the fledgling women’s group to buck up. Between fiestas and fundraisers, the Museum practically rose from the ashes overnight, eventually becoming one of the most respected in the Southwest.

Gal Power
From the 15 women who initially gathered as charter directors, Las Señoras is today an awe-inspiring organization of more than 100 members. Its mission? As in the early days, it is to come to the aid of the Desert Caballeros Western Museum. Each year, Las Señoras presents the Museum with the fruits of its labors—a generous check to be used for everything from paint to payroll. Las Senoras stands strong in preserving our western heritage and promoting camaraderie! Join them!
