Just in time for Halloween! Local historian Parker Anderson and local tour guide Darlene Wilson join forces for a spooky presentation of their book, Haunted Prescott!
About the Book
When Arizona was created as a U.S. territory in 1864, Prescott became its first capital. Accompanying the city's rich history is an equally dramatic heritage of supernatural manifestations. Visitors report a strange chill in the Palace Restaurant and taps on the shoulder at the Smoki Museum. Lingering spirits crowd famed hotels like the Vendome and the Hassayampa Inn, as well as theaters such as the Elks Opera House and Prescott Center for the Arts. Learn the secrets of Prescott's cemeteries and the truth about the hangings on the Courthouse Plaza as Darlene Wilson and Parker Anderson lead an excursion through the haunted sites of Arizona's mile-high city.
