This report describes the results of two historic resource surveys of the Camp Verde area. Volume I of the survey, conducted in 1996, was sponsored by the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) with funding provided by the Rural Preservation Initiative of the Arizona Heritage Fund. Volume II, conducted in 2001, was sponsored by Camp Verde Pride, Preservation & Progress, Inc. (CVP3) a private non-profit group with funding provided by the Arizona Humanities Council. The surveys were conducted by Arizona Preservation Consultants (APCON), a Flagstaff firm specializing in historic property research, evaluation, and planning.
The primary purpose of both volumes was to assemble historical and architectural information about properties that played important roles in Camp Verde’s history. A secondary purpose of the surveys was to help determine which of the properties might be eligible for the National Register of Historic Places, the nation’s official roster of properties considered worthy of preservation.
