Eastern Arizona College officially dedicated its new Student Services Building in May 2003. Part of the design for the new building included features designed specifically to house the Mills Collection, a significant assortment of ancient Native American pottery and artifacts.

This extensive personal collection was donated to the school in 1983 to ensure its permanence in the area to which these people were indigenous. The collection contains artifacts from what is known as the Salado Period (1250 A.D. to 1450 A.D.), and is an extensive display of the lifestyle and culture of the native people who lived in the region.

These “world class” artifacts can be viewed without cost by visiting the campus during regular business hours (8 am to 5 pm, Monday-Friday).
