Jackpot Ranch Spring BBQ

The Verde Valley Archaeology Center is hosting a Spring BBQ at the Jackpot Ranch on Sunday, April 7 from 2:00 to 5 pm. This is a fundraiser for our Capital Campaign to raise funds for the construction of the Archaeology Campus on our Homestead Parkway property. Details can be found HERE.


The Verde Valley Archaeology Center has applied to the U. S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development Program for funding assistance for development of its Archaeology Campus at 330 N. Homestead Parkway, Camp Verde. As required by the USDA, a public meeting will be held on April 2, 2019, at 6:00 pm, to discuss the specific elements of the application and to give the residents in the local area an opportunity to become acquainted with the proposed project. The residents may provide comments on such items as economic and environmental issues that may impact the area or discuss any alternatives to the proposed project. The meeting will be held at the Camp Verde Community Library, 130 Black Bridge Loop Rd.
