Many people are familiar with the colorful details that surround Prescott’s history. For those who aren’t we share it now.
Prior to statehood in 1912, Prescott served as the Arizona Territorial Capital from 1864-1866 and then again from 1877-1899. The city was bustling with many settlers moving in to begin a new life in the Wild West. Locals were starting and running new businesses up and down whiskey row including “the world’s oldest profession”.
There is reliable information that describes a network of underground tunnels connecting many of these businesses. The tunnels were utilized by the Chinese immigrants who were providing laundry services to the hotels and bars up and down the “row”.
Many of the pre 1900′s structures are rumored to have resident ghosts. Ours is one of those said to be haunted by a young lady named “Annie”.
Our building was known as the “Arizona Hotel” and it is rumored that it was connected to the tunnel system. Some local historians say that it is the oldest documented house of ill-repute in Arizona. It burned to the ground in the 1970′s and was later rebuilt.
It has changed hands many times over the years but its colorful history transcends time. With lighthearted humor we have named many of our food and beverage offerings with these stories in mind.
We hope that you agree Prescott, the Arizona Hotel and Food, Spirit and Music should celebrate this history and have a little fun at the same time. We hope you enjoy your experience! Cheers!
