            Seventeen members of the Phoenix Firebird Chapter of the Questers visited Smurthwaite House on Tuesday, March 22nd.  PCA member Judy Smith gave a PowerPoint presentation about the House and the adjoining cemeteries, using the PCA's new projector and laptop.  Afterward, the Questers viewed 21 memorial markers purchased with generous donations from their organization and others.  The Questers' visit concluded with lunch and a business meeting on the front porch of historic Smurthwaite House.

             Thanks to the work of several Boy Scouts, Eagle Scouts and Adventurers, the Pioneer & Military Memorial Park at 1317 West Jefferson has never looked better!   These young men are outlining paths with donated river rock to enhance the appearance of the cemeteries and make it easier for visitors to locate specific lots.

             The March 2016 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 will be 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!
