1875: VERDE ROAD; Spaulding's Station.

Verde Heritage

"SPAULDING'S STATION on the Verde road is being fitted up in elegant style for the accommodation of people traveling or teaming between Prescott and the Verde."

"Mr. Spaulding is making a permanent home for himself and family and intends to stock the ranch with some 2000 sheep at an early day. The finest furniture, carpets, cutlery, crockery, bedding, and in fact everything about the house, ever seen in a hotel in Arizona is being placed in this establishment."

(Arizona Weekly Miner; Prescott; April 2, 1875; page 3.)

"SPAULDING'S STATION, VERDE ROAD, formerly known as 'Dan Marr's.'"

"The undersigned having purchased this desirable Station, is fitting it up in STRICTLY FIRST-CLASS STYLE."

"EVERY ROOM will be richly carpeted, and every comfort and convenience provided for. THE TABLE will be furnished in a manner second to none in the Territory. THE BAR will be in keeping with the balance. Care will be taken that none but absolutely No. 1 liquors and cigars shall come into the house."

"THE CORRALS AND STABLES will be abundantly supplied with hay and grain."

"In short, nothing shall be left undone that ought to be done, and nothing done that ought not to be done in order to please those who may patronize the establishment."

"HENRY SPAULDING, Proprietor."

(Arizona Weekly Miner; Prescott; April 2, 1895; page 2.)

"A NEW POSTOFFICE has been established at Spaulding's Station, Agua Fria Valley, Dan H. Marr, Postmaster. This is a move in the right direction, but there should be another at Ash Creek." (Arizona Weekly Miner; Prescott; June 18, 1875; page 3.)
