Art, History, Specialized
A museum that tells an untold story. One that has never been told, not even by the world’s most famous museums. One that touches every person and culture... even life itself. One that is tied to the respective fortunes of both Arizona and Clarkdale; producing over 100 billion pounds of copper. One focused on what happened to all of Arizona’s copper, and its incredible journey that spanned the globe. One that makes perfect sense to this community and the Copper State.

The Clarkdale Historical Society and Museum was established as a museum housed in the town’s former clinic building built by United Verde Copper Company. The clinic was built in 1918 to serve the smelter workers and their families.
