Civil War reenactors            The PCA's 34th annual Memorial Day Observance and open house will take place on Monday, May 29th, from 9 AM to noon at the Pioneer & Military Memorial Park (cemeteries). Join emcee Marty Manning and keynote speaker Len Marcisz in honoring Arizona's fallen heroes. Several fraternal organizations and local reenactor groups in historic dress will also participate in the day's ceremonies.

For free event parking, choose Wesley Bolin Plaza or the Department of Education parking lot on the west side of 15th Avenue.  Limited handicapped parking is available at Smurthwaite House.

            The March 2017 newsletter is now on line. To view slideshows of previous events, please visit the PCA vault.

            You're invited to come downtown and tour the seven historic cemeteries that make up the Pioneer & Military Memorial Park, where many of Phoenix's founding fathers (and mothers) are buried.  See Smurthwaite House's new Victorian- and Edwardian-era furnishings and decorations, thanks to the tireless work of interior decorator and PCA member Judy Smith and her assistants.

           In keeping with its status as a small museum,  Smurthwaite House and the historic cemeteries at 1317 West Jefferson is open to visitors on Thursdays and for other events throughout the year.   Arrangements for private tours can also be made.  Please email the PCA well in advance of your visit to find out when our volunteer staff will be on the grounds.

          If you love local history and cemeteries, we'd love to have you as a PCA member and volunteer!
