            The Pioneers' Cemetery Association wishes to thank all who attended in its 32nd annual Memorial Day observance on May 25th at the Pioneer & Military Memorial Park!   A special thanks to the keynote speaker, author Jana Bommersbach, and all the re-enactor groups that participated in their colorful historic attire.

            Veterans' graves were gaily decorated with flags and flowers in commemoration of their service to our country between 1846 and 1903.  The Memorial Day program concluded with a cannon and rifle salute followed by a rendition of "Taps".     


            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.


         The March 2015 newsletter is now on line. To view slideshows of previous events, please visit the PCA vault.

        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!
