    The Eastern Arizona Museum & Historical Society is housed in three historic buildings. The main building was built in 1915 and served as the Bank of Pima and later the Pima Branch of the Bank of Safford. Later, it was the Pima City Hall then the Pima Chamber of Commerce. The middle building was known as Cluff Hall and was built in 1882. It originally served as the town's social center, then as a church, kindergarten, then as a funeral parlor. The third building was the Rexall Drug Store. This building still contains the original fountain mirror, shelves and drawers as part of the historic displays.

    The museum features a broad variety of displays from pioneer days to present. There are also multitudes of photos and family histories archived. Another area of the museum includes Indian artifacts from the region, representative of various cultures. They were also in the process of developing an automotive and agriculture museum.

    Open days and times are listed as: Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 2 PM to 4 PM and Saturday from 1 PM to 5 PM. Admission is free but donations are welcome.

    The Lines Green House

    by Basaic Written Oct 21, 2008

    Pima has a second historic site. The Lines/Green House was built in 1910 by Milton and Mary Lines, using a type of textured concrete blocks called "Sears Block". They were called this because they were made using a machine and molds you got from the Sears Catalog. The Lines lived in the house for a relatively short time. The resident taht lived there the longest was Reece Green who served as the bishop of Pima.
