Prescott Public Library
215 E. Goodwin Street
Prescott, AZ 86303

Bill Feyerabend will present the history and geology of the Vulture Mine.  The Vulture Mine outside Wickenburg was one the of the important economic drivers in early Arizona history. Grand Avenue cuts diagonally across the Phoenix street grid because it made a beeline between the early farmers along the Salt River and their important market with the Vulture miners. The discovery of the mine by Henry Wickenburg in 1863 was an accident of geology and the waxing and waning of production thru the decades. Learn the geologic controls to this historically important mine.
