Prescott is a city that acts as the county seat of Yavapai County, Arizona. Named in honor of William H Prescott in 1864, Prescott was the capital of Arizona territory until 1867 when the capital moved to Tucson.
Around 40,000 people currently live in Prescott and it forms part of the “Quad City” area which includes Dewey-Humboldt, Chino Valley, and Prescott Valley. Moving to the area is simplified if you choose to use car shipping rather than driving from distant locations.
Sitting slightly over a mile above sea level, the city often has much cooler temperatures than other cities in Arizona due to its altitude. The average high in the summer is 86 degrees, while average across the year is around 50 degrees. With a Mediterranean climate, you’d expect hot summers and mild winters, but the summers are tempered by rainfall due to the North American Monsoon.
The location for the city was chosen by Governor John Goodwin shortly after the creation of the Arizona territory, and has an interesting place in the history of the area. Aside from becoming the territory capital for a second time in 1877 (before the capital settled in Phoenix in 1889), Virgil Earp (brother of Wyatt) and Doc Holliday lived in Prescott prior to their famous gunfight at the OK Corral.
There have been problems with flash floods and extreme rainfall in the area since the 1800s, and Tropical Storm Octave brought over 14 inches of rain within 2 days in 1983. But it isn’t just rain, as fires have plagued the city too.
The entire downtown area was rebuilt with brick after multiple fires caused untold damage, and so far, they have managed to prevent other disasters. Prescott is home to over 500 buildings on the National Register of Historic Places, and is known for its museums, zoos and other sites of attraction, galleries, and other similar buildings.
