The mission of People Preserving Peteetneet (PPP); a non-profit, tax exempt, museum and cultural arts center; is to preserve our history, serve the public and promote community involvement through heritage education, preservation of historic artifacts as well as the preservation of the Historic Peteetneet Museum and Cultural Arts Center's rich historical and cultural legacies by adding to the understanding of Payson, its heritage, people, places and events.
Our vision, which is strong and dynamic, is successful in preserving the legacy of the past while meeting constantly evolving needs of present and future generations of our community. Our facility plays a vital role in Payson’s cultural life and serves the community by making the most effective use of resources to provide:
- A cohesive, involved and committed group of trustees, volunteers, community members, and city leaders.
- A venue where painting, sculpture, and other pieces of art as well as historical objects and artifacts that relate to the history of Payson and the surrounding area are displayed.
- A cultural center that is available for use by members of the community.
- Recreational facilities that are available on our grounds for members of our community to enjoy.
