Prescott was originally founded after the discovery of gold in 1864 and was selected as Arizona's first territorial capital; it lost that honor to Tucson, won it back, then lost it outright to Phoenix in 1889. It carries on its territorial heritage in a big and proud way with over 500 stately buildings on the National Register of Historic Places beautifully persevered in its downtown and residential areas. Noteworthy buildings include the Sharlot Hall Museum Complex with the original governor's mansion, which is actually a rustic log cabin built on the site in 1864, the John C. Fremont House, built in 1875, and the William C. Bashford house, built in 1877. One of the oldest sections of town is along Montezuma Street, which is home to Whiskey Row, a name earned in the Old West days with its many saloons. Today we find unique shops and galleries here, as well as historic establishments,such as the Palace and Jersey Lilly's. Just outside of Prescott we see the scenic Point of Rocks; next we visit Prescott's grand hotel, the Hassayampa Inn, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Hotels; then we celebrate Frontier Days at the World's Oldest Rodeo, which dates back to 1888.
