Whiskey Row / Courthouse

Only 10 mins from our Campground

Whiskey Row is full of some of Prescott’s oldest history. This street is named Whiskey Row because of the large number of saloons in one place. Whiskey Row developed after a fire in July of 1900 destroyed the entire block. When reconstructed, there was an inordinate amount of bars rebuilt in the area. At one point the block hosted a total of 40 saloons.
