After breakfast at the Dinner Bell or a tour of Sharlot Hall museum you should descend to Granite Creek and wander north. Who knows what will you will find in this overgrown corridor? My son and his friend found numerous mysterious objects hanging from trees or submerged in the stream.
"Who left them here?"
"What does it mean?"
"Is it art?"
You have to love a community that does something creative for the fun of it without having to put up a placard telling you what it all means. With no signage it means whatever I imagine it to mean or perhaps nothing at all! The imaginative process doesn't end when the artist finishes for heaven's sake! It just moves over to the viewer.
Sharlot Hall: The Bashford House
The Bashford House is a fine example of the Victorian Style of architecture. It was built in 1875 and moved to this site in 1974. Today it serves as the Museum Store and has a wide variety of items including plants.
America's Biggest Little Town
Prescott, is called "America's Home Town", by the Chamber of Commerce. It has a very diverse population. People from all over the world come here for the clean, ponderosa pine-scented mountain air and the wide open spaces.
Prescott was a wild mining town at the end of the 19th, beginning of the 20th century. Whiskey Row (Montezuma Street) was a string of bars that had connecting basements and tunnels leading from one to the other, so when it rained, the patrons wouldn't have to go outside and get wet if they wanted to bar-hop.
After the mines played out in the area, Prescott was a sleepy high plains town until the late 1970's. Since then the population has mushroomed from low four-figures to nearly 100K residents today.
Prescott is also famous for being the home of Bucky O'Neill, the first man killed at the battle of San Juan Hill in the Spanish-American War in Cuba. Fiorello LaGuardia was born in Prescott, and then his family moved back to New York City after the mines gave out, and the rest is history. The cult movie, "Billy Jack", was filmed mostly on-location in Prescott in the early 1970's. Prescott, however, is most famous for being the first location to hold a professional rodeo, a tradition that is still held on Fourth of July week every year at the Yavapai County Fair Grounds.
