. Bullion was operated most of its lifetime as the town’s "Mexican" school reflecting the segregation pattern which prevailed in many Arizona communities including the public school system. Bullion was desegregated during the 1950-51 school year and began integrating Anglo students into Bullion Plaza. (Submitted on August 10, 2013, by Bill Kirchner of Tucson, Arizona.)
