A History of Service

Opened in February 2018, new and traditional come together in the SRP Heritage Center with informational panels, artifacts, photos, interactive displays and virtual reality stations.

Stroll through at your own pace or start at the virtual reality station where you can rappel from a helicopter onto a 500-kilovolt line or visit Roosevelt Dam.

In addition to SRP's history, a rotating gallery space features new exhibits every six months focused on Arizona and the Southwest. Currently on display is "Looking through the Lens: Photographers of the Tonto Basin."

Artwork celebrating Arizona's history also lines the hallway leading into the Heritage Center. This includes sculpture, ceramics and photography by Arizona artists. You can view this art and learn more about it by downloading the book "Life in the Desert: SRP Canyon Gallery" Document is a PDF.


The Heritage Center is a community resource and open to the public.

  • Location: SRP's Project Administration Building lobby, 1500 N. Mill Ave., Tempe, AZ 85281

Preserving history for the future

Designated as an Arizona local legacy by the the Library of Congress, we collaborate with the Arizona Humanities Council and Central Arizona Museum Association to preserve and share Arizona's history.
