The Questers

The Questers is an international study organization founded by Jessie Elizabeth Bardens in 1944.  A non-profit organization, it has chapters in 43 states and 2 Canadian Provinces.  The major purposes of the Questers are to educate its members by research and study of antiques and to encourage the preservation and restoration of historical landmarks.  The Ho-Ho-Kams Chapter #0622 was organized on March 20,1973.  The Little Red Schoolhouse is an on-going project sponsored by this chapter and several of its members also serve on the Scottsdale Historical Society Board and as docents in the museum.  As you enter the schoolhouse, please notice, on the wall near the gift shop, a Special Recognition to the Questers and a list of all their donations to the museum since 1992.
