Amidst rolling hills and grasslands between the Bradshaw and Mingus Mountains, lies one of the

newest and friendliest communities in Arizona. Outside the Phoenix metropolitan area Prescott Valley is

the fastest growing town in the state with a population increase from 8,858 to over 37,000 since 1990.

In this fast growing rural paradise and “master planned community” exciting things are happening.

The citizen friendly Town Center has many projects already complete such as the Harkins 14 Screen

Luxury Cineplex, located within the Prescott Valley Entertainment Center. Numerous restaurants have

joined the theater in making this a great place for an evening on the town. Future and existing

subdivisions offer housing, golf courses and retail outlets.

Top quality education is offered by four area colleges and universities, along with the local school district.

Excellent healthcare is available at the new Prescott Valley branch of the Yavapai Regional Medical Center,

the YRMC Outpatient Center and the Mountain Valley Rehabilitation Hospital. Clean and progressive

industries have established operations in the area and provide a job base for the growing community. Prescott

Valley’s business climate is one of the best in Northern Arizona and is well supported by the

community. This area is rich in cultural attractions, with four museums, several art galleries and live theater.

Award winning parks offer fun filled community events. Numerous recreational opportunities are available on

the surrounding lakes, golf courses and national forest.

For a family move, retirement or business relocation this well planned

and progressive community is a perfect choice.

Prescott Valley is centrally located in Arizona at an elevation

of 5100 ft. It has a moderate, near perfect, four season, semiarid

climate. The surrounding terrain consists of grasslands,

pinon and juniper, hills interspersed with boulder formations

and craggy canyons. Several small lakes and streams grace the

area. Aspen, cottonwood, oak and maple grow along with the

nation’s largest contiguous forest of Ponderosa pines.

The relatively short winter has an occasional snowstorm which

usually melts after a few hours of sunshine. Spring is very

changeable alternating between sun and rain in a very short

period of time, producing beautiful color and freshness. Summers

are warm, mostly sunny with occasional thunderstorms.

Daytime mountain breezes keep the area from reaching the

scorching high temperatures of the low lying areas in Arizona.

Summer evenings produce spectacular sunsets and a delightful

coolness to the end the day.

Fall arrives with a kaleidoscope of colors .The variation of foliage

changes with the shorter but still pleasant days, with

temperatures staying in the 60's to low 70's. Each season is

pleasant with enough variation to make the weather interesting

and always with the ever present sunshine averaging 300

days a year!

The town of Prescott Valley’s explosive growth is expected to

continue into the future. The development of affordable housing,

a planned downtown business district, as well as parks

and schools are in various stages of construction. All construction

is subject to high standards of quality, mandated by state

and local codes. Several subdivisions offer single and multifamily

residences in settings, subject to strict visual standards,

providing a style of living preferred by many. At the same time,

relatively inexpensive land and housing is available within easy

commuting distance to any tri-city employer. Of the houses,

apartments, etc. in Prescott Valley, about 70% are lived in by

their owners, not renters. Notably, housing in Prescott Valley

tends to be newer than in most towns.

A Mayor, six Council Members and a Town Manager govern the

Town of Prescott Valley. The tremendous growth in Prescott Valley

is due primarily to a progressive, growth-oriented Town Council.

The local Police Department has 50 sworn officers and 14 civilian

positions. Because of this professional and progressive

department the crime rate in Prescott Valley is consistently

low. The Fire Dept. is staffed with both full-time and volunteer

personnel.

At the heart of this master-planned community is the Town

Center, the result of 20 years of planning and public/private

partnering. The master-planned New Urbanist/Main Street

concept on 700 acres features a Civic Center Town Hall, office/R.D.

complex, and planned residential community consisting

of multi-dwelling housing, condos, townhomes, parks

and community-style living which will be compatible in design.

It will be linked by pedestrian friendly streets and well

landscaped sidewalks. In addition to a full service hospital and

medical offices, senior housing and assisted living centers will

grace the downtown area.

The Prescott Valley Entertainment Center in the Prescott Valley

Town Center is the heart of entertainment and dining in the

area. It features the Harkins 14-screen stadium style Cineplex,

30,000 sq. ft. of restaurant/food court, 20,000 sq. ft. of high

profile mixed use retail and 40,000 sq. ft. of office space in

two buildings.

Within the Town Center is the Police Department, court facility,

town hall with library and now the new Prescott Valley

Convention and Events Center.

Prescott Valley’s economy consists of industry, manufacturing,

retail and service businesses. Improvements such as the sewer

plant expansion, road widening projects and water system upgrades

will be a great benefit to the community. A $61 million

medical center, a $15 million rehabilitation hospital, the opening

of Lockheed Martin’s hub center and a $35 million convention

and events arena are wonderful new additions to the area.

Dewey-Humboldt

The Town of Dewey-Humboldt was incorporated effective

December 20, 2004 after a successful drive for incorporation

that began several years earlier. Voters passed the initiative

creating the Town with 72 percent voting in favor. The initiative

defined the actual Town limits and the name – Dewey-

Humboldt.

Dewey and Humboldt represented two distinct communities

during the last 100 + years with Dewey providing an agricultural

and ranching economy while the Humboldt area had an

economy based in mining.

As the Town of Prescott Valley continued to grow since its

founding in the mid 1960’s, the people within the Dewey and

Humboldt areas became concerned that Prescott Valley’s

growth and annexation strategy might continue along Highway

69 and could ultimately jeopardize the very low density,

rural flavor of the area. In response, many people became involved

in ‘spearheading’ the drive for incorporation. During

this process, it also became clear to some that incorporation

would allow a new town to have more control over how tax

dollars are spent within the town than would be the case if it

remained unincorporated.

Culture and arts

The solon H. Borglum fine art exhibit

located at the Civic Center in

Prescott Valley is a result of a friendship

forged in the early 1980s between

Jerri Wagner, arts advocate

and a former mayor of Prescott, and

Monica Borglum Davies, daughter

of Solon Borglum. Ms. Wagner was

instrumental in forming the Prescott

Area Art Trust, whose original goal

was to restore and maintain the Captain

William Owen O’Neill Memorial

in Prescott. The Prescott Area Art

Trust eventually purchased most of

the pieces in the exhibit from the

Borglum family, and Harry Wagner

and Bob Mason of Prescott picked up

and drove the collection from Connecticut

to Arizona in a rental truck.

The exhibit was on display at Sharlot Hall Museum in Prescott

for two years and was in storage for a number of years before

being relocated to the Civic Center for the enjoyment and education

of the public.

art at the Center

Each year the Arts and Culture Commission review numerous

entries, through a juried process, that desire to be part of its

annual display and promotion. The goal of the program is two

fold. First and foremost, enhance and expand the community’s

exposure to the arts. Second, market the artists work with the

understanding that each visiting piece on display is for sale and

that a portion of their sale proceeds will further the operation

of the program. Those sculptures, on loan from the artists, will

inhabit our campus for one year until a new set arrives each

and every spring. Until then, please enjoy this fabulous experience

of interacting with these varied displays as you wander the

grounds of the Civic Center. And take your time; they each have

a special story to tell if you are willing to listen.

fain Park

The Fain family, one of the

original frontier families in

Prescott Valley, donated the

land to the citizens of Prescott

Valley. This 100-acre park is

being developed in two phases.

The western half is open

to recreational activities. We

encourage picnicking, hiking,

gold panning and fishing. The

lake is presently stocked by

the Arizona Game and Fish

Department and requires only

a fishing permit from that entity.

Children under twelve

fish free.

Located in Downtown Prescott, the Sharlot Hall Museum was

founded in 1927 by Sharlot Mabridth Hall, poet, historian,

and independent thinker, whose passion to preserve the Territorial

Governor’s Mansion has led to the development of the

complete Museum campus you find here today. The Museum’s

buildings form an architectural sequence spanning the years

from the founding of Prescott in 1864 to the present. The exhibits

and the Museum’s collections of artifacts (clothing, tools,

vehicles, weapons), photographs, documents, and buildings tell

the stories of those who settled Arizona and the West, of the

Native Americans who preceded them, and of the area’s rich

natural environment. Completed in 1979, the Museum Center

is the hub around which Museum activities revolve. In the

lobby you’ll find an exhibit about the founder of the Museum,

Sharlot M. Hall.

the Governors mansion was built on this site in 1864 from

Ponderosa pine logs cut nearby. It housed the first Territorial

Governor, John Goodwin, and his staff. Large and well built, it

is called a “mansion” in comparison to the tents, wagons, and

crude cabins that were homes for the rest of Prescott’s new

citizens in 1864. In 1927 Sharlot M. Hall moved into the Governor’s

Mansion and opened it as a museum.

The Bashford House (and Gift Shop & Museum), is an excellent

example of Prescott’s Victorian architecture, the height

of housing fashion for the thirty years before statehood.

Built in 1877.

fort misery is the

oldest log building

associated with

the Territory of Arizona.

It was built

on the banks of

Granite Creek (two

blocks south of the

Museum) in 1863-

64. Sharlot Hall had

it disassembled in

1934 and reassembled

on the Museum

grounds.

the fremont House, built in 1875, served as the home of the

fifth territorial governor of Arizona (1878-1881). The sophisticated

construction of this house reflects the rapid growth of

Prescott during the ten years after 1864.

the Phippen museum

The Phippen Museum of Western Art sits on five acres of land

alongside Highway 89 and resembles a rustic ranch house

from days gone by. The museum contains an outstanding collection

smoki museum

The museum was built in 1935 from native wood and stone,

to resemble an Indian pueblo. It was constructed with labor

provided by the Civilian Works Administration and the Smoki

People. The Smoki People were a group of Prescott citizens organized

in 1921 and dedicated to the perpetuation of American

Indian ceremonies and dances.

The Museum houses irreplaceable collections of prehistoric

and contemporary pottery, prehistoric jewelry and stone artifacts.

The Smoki Museum exhibits also include an outstanding

collection of Southwest basketry and kachinas. Among the Museum’s

many valued collections are artist Kate Cory’s numerous

photographs, paintings and documents.

The Smoki Museum welcomes school groups, civic organizations

and travel groups. Our facilities are available for classes.

A comprehensive library of books on American Indian archaeology

and ethnography is available for research. The Museum

Trading Post offers affordable arts and crafts created by Native

North and South Americans, as well as several Southwest

publications. 147 N. Arizona St. – Prescott - 928-445-1230

ancient Ruins

montezuma Castle

Sinagua farmers began building this five-story, 20-room dwelling

early in the 12th century. Montezuma Castle stands in a cliff

recess a hundred feet above the valley in the Camp Verde area.

Early settlers marveled at the structure and thought mistakenly

that it was Aztecan in origin. A short distance west is Castle

A, once an imposing six-story apartment with about 45 rooms,

now a badly deteriorated ruin.

tuzigoot

(Apache for “crooked water”) is the remnant of a Sinaguan village

built between 1125 and 1400. It crowns the summit of a

long ridge that rises 120 feet above the Verde Valley. The original

pueblo was two stories high in places and had 77 groundfloor

rooms. There were few exterior doors; entry was by way

of ladders through openings in the roofs. The village began as

a small cluster of rooms that were inhabited by about 50 persons

for a hundred years. In the 1200s the population doubled

and doubled again as refugee farmers, fleeing drought in outlying

areas settled here.

D ay t R i P s

montezuma Well

w w w. a z r e l o c a t i o n g u i d e s . c o m

Montezuma Well features a lake with lush vegetation in the

middle of the desert located in the Camp Verde area. The well

is a limestone sink formed long ago by the collapse of an immense

underground cavern. The springs that feed it flow continuously.

Both the Hohokam and Sinagua irrigated crops with

its waters. Traces of their irrigation ditches, thickly coated with

lime, can be seen. The Hohokam pithouse on view was built

about 1100. The Sinaguan dwellings here vary in size from

large pueblos of 55 rooms to one-room houses.

sedona/oak Creek Canyon

Situated in the heart of a strikingly beautiful geological area

that has mesmerized visitors for years, the unique community

of Sedona is surrounded by massive crimson and buff

sandstone monoliths standing in artistic contrast with pinon,

juniper and cypress trees. Add to this the spectacular

Oak Creek Canyon Rd. leading north and climbing 12 miles,

each turn more breathtaking than the last with lush vegetation,

craggy canyons, sycamores, oak and cottonwood.

Complementing the magnificence of these natural creations

is the delightfully charming Arts and Crafts Village

of “Tlaquepaque,” situated in the heart of Sedona. Meaning

“the best of everything,” Tlaquepaque is truly a fitting

name for this Spanish Colonial Village. Displays by several

renowned Arizona artisans, intriguing one-of-a-kind shops,

fine restaurants, sunny flower-filled courtyards, graceful old

sycamores, colorful tiles, fountains and carillons combine to

create an unforgettable ambiance.


Jerome

Jerome, sometimes

nicknamed “The City

in the Sky,” is situated

a short drive east on

Highway 89A at an

elevation of 5,435'.

As the most talked

about mining camp

in America, it was a

roaring, violent town,

called the most wicked

city in America.

Three prospectors

staked claims on rich

copper deposits in

1876, which they later

sold to the United

Verde Copper Company

in 1883. Eugene

Jerome was the

venture’s principal

backer. A new owner,

Wm. Clark, brought

in a narrow gauge

railroad to reduce freight costs. By the early 20th century, the

United Verde was the largest producing copper mine in the

Arizona Territory. In 1912, James S. Douglas purchased and

developed the Little Daisy Mine. Copper production peaked in

1929 and the population was 15,000. Loss of profits brought

Jerome mining days to an

end in 1953. By 1955, Jerome’s

population was less

than 100, giving it the title

of a “ghost” town. It is now

a veritable paradise for artists,

photographers and

history buffs.

arcosanti

In 1970, the Cosanti Foundation began building Arcosanti, an

experimental town in the high desert of Arizona, 70 miles north

of metropolitan Phoenix. When complete, Arcosanti will house

5000 people, demonstrating ways to improve urban conditions

and lessen our destructive impact on the earth. Its large, compact

structures and large-scale solar greenhouses will occupy

only 25 acres of a 4060 acre land preserve, keeping the natural

countryside in close proximity to urban dwellers.

Early Construction of the Vaults Arcosanti is designed according

to the concept of arcology (architecture + ecology), developed

by Italian architect Paolo Soleri. In an arcology, the

built and the living interact as organs would in a highly evolved

being. This means many systems work together, with efficient

circulation of people and resources, multi-use buildings, and

solar orientation for lighting, heating and cooling.

In this complex, creative environment, apartments, businesses,

production, technology, open space, studios, and educational

and cultural events are all accessible, while privacy is

paramount in the overall design. Greenhouses provide garden-

d ay t r i P s C o n t i n u e d

ing space for public and private use, and act as solar collectors

for winter heat.

Arcosanti is an educational process. The four-week workshop

program teaches building techniques and arcological philosophy,

while continuing the city's construction. Volunteers and

students come from around the world. Many are design students,

and some receive university credit for the workshop.

But a design or architecture background is not necessary. People

of many varied interests and backgrounds are all contributing

their valuable time and skills to the project. Week-long

silt sculpture workshops and Elderhostel programs offer other

ways to be involved. At the present stage of construction,

Arcosanti consists of various mixed-use buildings and public

spaces constructed by 5000 past Workshop participants.

The residents of Arcosanti are workshop alumni, who work

on planning, construction, teaching, computer aided drafting,

maintenance, cooking, carpentry, metal work, ceramics, gardening

and communications. They produce the world-famous

Soleri Bells, as well as hosting 50,000 tourists each year in a

Gallery, Bakery, and Cafe open every day except Thanksgiving,

Christmas, and New Years Day. Guided tours introduce visitors

to the philosophy , history, planning and ongoing construction

of the site.

Concerts and other events in the Colly Soleri Music Center also

allow visitors to experience Arcosanti. Shows include dinner,

and are often followed by a pictograph light show on the opposite

mesa.

mayer area

A short distance from Prescott Valley lies the intriguing communities

of Mayer, Spring Valley, and Cordes Lakes at elevations

of 3,700’ - 4,415’. Each is unique, although part of the

harmony of open space, four-season climate, clean air and

Western individuality. This is the geographical center of the

state, but friendly people, opportunity and a lingering spirit

of Old West adventure all make it the Heart of Arizona. The

Gold Mountain Mining Co. in Mayer is an interesting ghost

town. Remnants of the Big Bug Mine can be seen on the Big

Bug Creek - named for the size of the insects found there.

Bagdad

The small mining town of Bagdad sits on Bridle Creek in the

rugged Aquarius Mountains, approximately 60 miles west of

Prescott at an elevation of 4,101 feet. In 1882 copper ore was

discovered in the area. The Cyprus Bagdad Copper Mine still

operates today.

One should never confuse the spelling of Bagdad with that of

Baghdad Iraq. The name supposedly comes from the first miners

in the area, a father–son team. They hauled the ore out in

bags filled by the son and aided by the dad. When the son had

a bag filled he would yell, “bag Dad”. Hence the name Bagdad.
