The Museum houses an interesting array of artifacts, photographs, and memorabilia depicting the economic and social life of the Globe-Miami-San Carlos region's early years.

Currently there are exhibits honoring community men and women who served in the armed services of our country, with wartime uniforms and weapons from past conflicts.

In addition there is a stand-alone ceramic art exhibit donated by Globe's nationally known tile artists, Bob and Charmion McKusick. The exhibit includes a lifetime collection of unique ceramic materials and processes developed and preserved by the local couple.

Enjoy our speakers programs the first Friday of every month at 6 pm. There is no admission fee to visit the museum and the speakers programs are free of charge.


We are dedicated to preserving and presenting the culturally diverse history, the human experience, as well as exploring the natural environment unique to the Miami-Globe region of Arizona.


The Bullion Plaza School is a two-story, reinforced concrete school building located on the west end of the town of Miami, AZ. Built in 1923, the Neo-Classical Revival building was designed by the El Paso, Texas, architecture firm of Trost & Trost. It was used continuously as a school from 1923 until the spring of 1994. It was built to segregate students, and was desegregated in the early 1950s. Now owned by the Town of Miami, the building is a center of history and culture for the community.
