I visited friends in Wickenburg for a week starting November 27th. What a wonderful place you have! The small town atmosphere and friendly people make Wickenbug one of the most enjoyable places to visit that I have ever seen. We ate at Anita’s Cocina twice, and it was so good, I ate way too much both times. Many thanks for your hospitality to the folks on Mariposa Drive. I hope to return as soon as possible.

Due to military commitments I have not been home to Wickenburg in many years. If I would have stayed in school I would have graduated with the class of “89” As I visisted what I still consider my home town last week, I noticed alot of changes. Far to many lights and the high school has been replaced by a middle school. May I cunclude that Vulture Peak School is no longer the middle school? That high school has been found to be over rated and no longer needed by the local yocals? anyway, it was nice to come home however brief and even nicer to know there is a place i can come to visit my home town no matter where in the world the navy takes me. thank you….

Thanks! Lisa & Bryce Jackson

My brother rode in a fantastic trail ride out of Wickenburg… and I am wanting to find as much information about it as I can. I work for the American Royal Rodeo, Horse and Livstock Association in Kansas City, MO. We are wanting to do a smaller version of this trail ride so I am still digging for information. Wickenburg sounds like a beautiful little town… much like the one’s around here. If you have a link or information, I’d love to get some feedback. Thank you!

Well i used to live in wickenburg as a young fellow,and i have missed it from the day i moved away.I graduated ’91 and passed through in ’94.I cant say enough how great a town Wickenburg is and rich in its history and valiant in its pride though humble in its friendliness.I would like to be able to find a Pastor there that would be willing to allow me to visit once a year and Minister there and really enjoy the town.So please if you know of a Pastor who would appreciate someone who would just come and be a blessing and really just desire to compliment there vision that is in there heart that would be great.I am planted in my home Church so i respect other Pastors and what they are doing for their area.Isn’t it great in Wickenburg !!!!!

I am excited to be coming to Wickenburg the beginning of October. This site has given me some great info on the area. I will be working in the area and can’t wait to explore the region. Thanks for this marvelous reference to what’s happening in and around Wickenburg. See you soon!

I retired (sort of; I now have two part-time jobs) in Salome about four years ago. I visit Wickenburg every week. I have watched it grow and have casually kept an eye on how the town government works. I enjoy my trips to Wickenburg and read the newspaper every week. I take my hat off to the folks of Wickenburg on how they are actively engaged in the BOOT project.
Your website is an excellent site. Another one visitors may enjoy is: www.azoutback.com. It covers history, folklore, businesses, Chambers of Commerce and events related to communities to the West of Wickenburg.
When traveling West on Highway 60, stop in the Salome Restaurant or Sandy’s Outback Services (across the highway) to learn more about Salome (Where she danced) and the Salome Frog. Also, if you’re coming through Salome in October, check out Dick Wick Hall Days. If you enjoy Chili Cook-Off’s, ours (held in February), is among the regions best.

Greetings everyone! There is a possibility I will be moving to Wicenburg next year do to College graduations and time to “enter the real working world.” Ugh! Anyway, this site was extreamly helpful. Thanks so much. I’d be interested in finding a pen pal down there. Are there any mountains around? Does anyone between the ages of 20 and 30 live there? 🙂 Take care and blessings!

I went to a psychic, she said in a previuos life I lived in Wickenburg and was buried there as Raymond Edward Gardner. Can anyone tell me if there is a cemetary in town dating back to the 1800’s? Are the markers in good condition?

I was driving through Wickenburg last month (May/2000) and just loved the area and was going to add it to one my places to transfer to. Except for that article about the proposed Douglas Ranch (164,000) people? I sure would appreciate any future information on this subject. That sure would change my mind on relocating to that beautiful area.

Hi, I used to live in Wickenburg and a grad from WHS in 1982. I also lived in Aguila with my parents (Jim & Tina Glazier) which live and work in Wickenburg. I have been to your site before and really enjoyed the great pictures of Wickenburg. I lived in Wickenburg for about 3 years in the early 1980’s. I give the town of Wickenburg a blessing and hope to, someday soon, come back for at least a visit. “Chris” 🙂

This wonderful site brings back memories of a visit about 5 or6 years ago while touring Arizona. I only spent 1 night in your great town but ever since have regretted not staying longer. I stayed in the Best Western Motel and dined in a small restaurant almost directly opposite – I remember leaving my hat there and having to go back to collect it. I have a lovely pair of boots that were bought in Wickenberg but unfortunately I cannot now wear them. Is the old steam loco still in the park behind the Sheriff’s office? Best wishes and hope to return!

I am in the process of possibly moving to Wickenburg, AZ from Wicksburg. AL. I have a teen son in high school and would like info pertaining to the quality of the HS there. What are the average house rentals for a 3BR house that would allow well behaved pets. I lived in Tucsun for 12 years before leaving AZ but we are returning. For the dedicated locals, should I consider Wickenburg or Show Low as the place to relocate. (jobs are at both locations. I lean to Wickenburg becausr Show Low has serious winter. ) Your comments please. Thank you, David Watson Please e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org

Thank you for the picture tour of the town. The photo of the covered walkway shows the real flavor of the town or at least my impression of “coziness”. It also showed a very clean town which seemed to imply less wind here then higher up in Prescott. We plan to visit the area late this fall and see the valleys which run from Phoenix west and north. Again it almost seems like I have already picked up a taste for your town… just from the pictures.
