Barry Goldwater began his political career in 1952 with a rally at the Yavapai County Courthouse across the street. He started all of his campaigns, including the one for president, at the courthouse and finished them at Fredonia, a small town on the Utah border.
Wow, I’m sorry to hear this. It has been years since I’ve been in Prescott, but I have many fond memories of staying at the Hasayampa and walking down to Whiskey Row. I love the place.
