About the Event

This year marks a centennial -- with tours and more planned for March 23 starting at 10:30 a.m. Bullion Plaza Cultural Center & Museum. * 12:00 noon to 1:30 pm Complimentary lunch served in the Bullion Plaza Gym, courtesy of the Town of Miami Senior Center & Miami Genesis * 12:00 – 2:00 pm Mariachi Alegre live music * 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm Museum Tours * 2:00 pm- 3:00 pm San Carlos Turtle Rock Apache Crown Dancers Miami’s Bullion Plaza School opened in 1924, for decades serving as a grammar school for Mexican-American and Apache children, before integrating anglo students during the 1950-51 school year. Four decades later it closed, and in 1997 the town of Miami purchased Bullion Plaza from the school district, volunteers began transforming the old school into the Bullion Plaza Cultural Center & Museum – which was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2000, and opened its first exhibit that same year. Generous grants made this happen, too, thanks to: Gila County Board of Supervisors, United Fund of Globe Miami, Gila County Industrial Development Authority, Freeport McMoRan Copper & Gold, the Freeport Foundation, the Globe Miami Chamber of Commerce, American Slavic Association, Capstone, Resolution Copper, Arizona Historical Society, Valley of the Sun United Way, Ram Specialists, Kino Floors, Mike Pastor, Roberto Reveles, Keith Dindinger, Peggy Snow, and the Slavic Committee – to name just a few. Donations are welcome, and Bullion Plaza is also a nonprofit tax-exempt 501(c) (3) organization, making donations tax-deductible. One need that is arguably more urgent than money this summer? Volunteers! Friendly greeters who can help cover the museum and gift shop to keep the doors open Wednesday – Saturday from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. Are you a former student there – or a resident who can spare a few hours one day each week, alongside others who share your love for our community’s heritage?
