OUR MISSION is to preserve archaeological sites and collections, to curate the collections locally, and to make them available for research and education; to develop partnerships with American Indians, cultural groups and the communities it serves; and to foster a deeper understanding of prehistory and American Indian history in the Verde Valley through the science of archaeology.

Holiday Hours

The Center will be closed on Christmas Eve and Day, and New Years Eve and Day. 


  Annual Meeting

The Annual Membership Meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 20, 2015, starting at 7:00 pm.  The business meeting will include election of the Board of Directors, and reports by the President, Executive Director and Treasurer.  After this short business portion, our Director of Archaeology, Dr. Todd Bostwick, will then give the first formal presentation on the Paul Dyck Collection.  More details on this collection will be coming in the next few weeks.
