Marshall Shore, Arizona’s Hip Historian, is Librarian turned Hipstorian. Marshall’s passion is uncovering the weird, the wonderful, and the obscure treasures from our past: the semi-forgotten people, places, and events that have made us who we are today. Marshall uses storytelling magic, found film footage, old photographs, ephemera, and artifacts to bring our state’s heritage to life in entertaining and educational presentations. Take a tour with Marshall through some of Arizona’s best known, and least known, ghost towns.
