The Verde Valley Archaeology Center has received a $24,000 grant.

As the official nonprofit partner of Montezuma Castle and Tuzigoot National Monuments, the archaeology center plays a vital role in conservation, preservation and education for the Verde Valley. This grant will go a long way in ensuring a bright future for the archaeology center. 

The Museums of America grant is made possible by the Institute for Museum and Library Services.  The grant money will be used to update and expand the center’s current Yavapai-Apache exhibit

While the Verde Valley Archaeology Center will lead the expansion project, they will work closely with the Yavapai-Apache Nation’s cultural directors and archaeologist. The exhibit aims to provide a better understanding and appreciation of the ancestral and current Yavapai and Apache history, who have called the Verde Valley home since 2,000 B.C.

 The Center is located at 385 S. Main Street in Camp Verde. Museum exhibits are open, free to the public, Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, visit vvarchcenter.org, or call 928-567-0066.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
