More about The Town of Wickenberg:

Henry Wickenburg came to the area in search of gold. He was rewarded with the discovery of Vulture Mine (1863-1942), where over 340,000 ounces of gold and 260,000 ounces of silver were found. There are still relics around the area that stand as a tribute to these early adventurers, as well as a walking tour around Vulture City, which is adjacent to the present-day Vulture Mine. Ranchers and farmers discovered the fertile flood plain of the Hassayampa River and settled in the area. The Hassayampa River Preserve lets you escape to a literal oasis in the desert with lush, stream-side habitat that include many endangered birds and animals. Together, with Henry Wickenburg and the miners, they helped found the young community of Wickenburg in 1863. The Town of Wickenburg was incorporated in 1909. It was a rough start for the Town with Indian wars, mine closures, desperados, drought, and a disastrous flood in 1890 when the Walnut Creek Dam burst. Despite these trials and tribulations, the Town continued to grow. In 1895 the railroad arrived in Wickenburg. The historic depot still stands today as the Wickenburg Chamber of Commerce building.
