Pioneer and Military Memorial Park contains the oldest existing seven cemeteries within the city limits of Phoenix and the 1897 Victorian Smurthwaite House. The cemeteries are located within a prehistoric Hohokam Indian site known as La Villa. Established between 1884 and 1898, the cemeteries closed to burials in 1914. The cemeteries contain the rich history of Phoenix and its settlers. Those buried in the cemeteries include Darrell Duppa who gave Phoenix its name and Jacob Waltz of the fabled “Lost Dutchman Mine.” People of all ethnicities, cultural backgrounds, wealthy, poor and the unknown are buried in PMMP.
