A History of Service

Arizona has a rich history that SRP is proud to be a part of and we are committed to helping preserve it. We invite you to learn more, help us in our preservation efforts and explore SRP’s story.

History Center

The SRP History Center features exhibits about the construction of Theodore Roosevelt Dam and the pioneers that settled Arizona. Located in the lobby of the Project Administration Building , visitors are welcome during regular business hours.


To further support the preservation of history, SRP’s heritage group participates in the following organizations:

AZ Falls then and now
  • The Central Arizona Museum Association , which is dedicated to the promotion of museums. Central Arizona museums showcase a wide variety of topics including history, archaeology, art, hands-on exhibits, science and anthropology.
  • The Arizona Humanities Council , a non-profit organization that supports humanities related public programs to further the understanding of the human experience. SRP partners with Arizona Humanities to promote the cultural heritage of Arizona.
  • SRP is proud to be one of Arizona's local legacies as designated by the the Library of Congress. More than 1,300 projects were registered by Congress, including photos, written reports, sound and video recordings, newspaper clippings, posters, and other materials. These projects were sent to the Library of Congress to become a permanent part of the collection of the American Folklife Center.
