Prescott, Arizona

Voted one of the top places to retire in the US

Voted one of the top places to retire in the US, Prescott lies in a mountainous section of west central Arizona surrounded by 1.2 million acres of the Prescott National Forest. Prescott’s mile high elevation assures clean clear air and an ideal year round climate.

The average daytime temperature is 70 degrees, with the summer daytime average reaching 89 degrees and the winter daytime average reaching 52 degrees. Prescott combines the charm of Arizona’s historic past with modern schools, shopping, medical facilities and community programs.

The hub of many cultural activities, Prescott is home to five museums, four art galleries and the dramatic offerings of Yavapai College and Prescott Fine Art Association. In addition, the city offers acres of parks providing such activities as tennis, softball and surrounding area golf courses.

The history of Prescott dates back over 135 years and the city continues to maintain its small town charm. It’s no wonder Prescott has been chosen as one of America’s most pleasant communities in which to live.

See for yourself why Fiorello La Guardia, one-time mayor of New York City, called Prescott “the most comfortable and most wonderful city in the world.”

The historic town center is still the cultural hub of Prescott. You will find community events at Courthouse Square year-round and enjoy the dining and nightlife of the famed Whisky Row.

Just ten minutes from Yavapai Hills, Watson Lake features fishing, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, and camping all without leaving the city.

A Mix of the Past and Present

Tom Mix, the King of Cowboys

Linger awhile at beautiful Yavapai Hills, and if you listen very carefully, you might hear the pounding of horses’ hooves. Because it was here back in the early 1900’s that Tom Mix, the King of Cowboys, spent much of his time in the Prescott area.

It was in 1913 that Mix signed a contract to do movies and moved his family to the Bar Circle A Ranch which is now Yavapai Hills. During the same year he took part in the Prescott Frontier Days celebration where he won first prize in the steer riding and bulldogging competition.

Over one hundred two-and three-reel westerns were filmed in and around Slaughter House Gulch, a dry wash that runs though Yavapai Hills. The “hanging tree,” a magnificent old maple with spreading branches, could have grown specifically for stringing up the bad guys. The tree still stands in all its beauty on our property.

Come see…the Mix of past and present, and the legend of Yavapai Hills.
