History & History Related Items

Wickenburg history:

The town was named for Henry Wickenburg in 1863 when he discovered the successful Vulture Gold mine nearby. The town boomed and within three years became the third largest city in Arizona, missing becoming the Territorial capital by only two votes. Because no one wanted to stop their mining long enough to build a jail, local lawbreakers were chained to what was named the "jail tree." There is a river that runs through Wickenburg named the Hassayampa River. The main current runs about 20 feet below ground. The local indians name for the River means "the river which flows upside down."
