The Ultimate Yavapai County, Arizona  Place Names Trivia

These are all well known Ultimate Yavapai County, Arizona Place Names.  I will give you some information and you pick the correct place.  "Check Your Answers" at the end of the page.

Trivia powered by Prof. Walter1) Known in Yavapai as Wikanyacha "rough, black range of rocks", and to European explorers as the Silver Mountain Range. I am a mountain range in the Sonoran Desert of central Arizona. , later named for two brothers.  My first known settlements are a group of Yavapai Indians, called the Kwevkapaya who built forts and mined copper from around AD 1100 to 1600. Apaches occupied the area around 1800 as a means of keeping White settlers out.

But by 1863, a party led by brother William is in the area, followed by the Walker party. In 1864, a group of five white settlers are attacked by Apaches at what is now called Battle Flat. One of the settlers went for help, but upon his return found the Apaches had left. The Walker party finds gold, and within a few years, I am filling up with settlers mining for gold, silver, and copper. In the early part of the 1900s, most of the towns that have sprung up are little more than ghost towns.

I am located approximately 5 miles south of Prescott, Arizona, between the Agua Fria River on the east, and the Hassayampa River on the west, the range is 40 miles long, and almost 25 miles wide.

The site of a former gold mining town, Crown King is 28 miles west of Interstate 17 on Senator Highway. The community is named after the mine, but the name is shortened in 1888.  While over US$2,000,000 in gold is taken from the mine alone, the mines has been closed since the 1950's and for the past half-century tourism has been the only reliable source of income in the area.

The first recorded gold claim is "Buckeye" and is filed by Rod McKinnon on July 1, 1875. Over the next 40 years, more than 15 mines or claims were made in the area.  At its height, the town had 500 buildings, including several company stores and boarding houses, two Chinese restaurants and a post office. The town was electrified by 1897 and had one telephone at that time.

8) I am a mining camp in Yavapai County, Arizona, it is now a ghost town. Originally established in the 1860s, I am a haven for many of the early pioneers of Arizona. The town dies out in the mid to late 1880s. When gold ss discovered in the mountains, dozens of ghost town spring up around and on top of the mountains over time. The City is named after the man who first discover gold around the area in 1863. The Mining District is also named after him. I am found on the northwest side of Mount Wasson. At first the settlement is literally a camp but due to the vast pine forests all over the mountains, stone and lumber was quickly used to build permanent structures.

Multiple saloons, stores, restaurants, a barber shop, a stage and a meat market along with two hotels accommodated the large population of around 5,000. My nearest major settlement is Prescott, thirty miles away. Settlers can travel for free on the only wagon accessible road.
