Cave Creek Museum Presents: The Saga of the Salt and Its Connection to Cave Creek

Cave Creek Museum 6140 E Skyline Drive, Cave Creek

Would a very short rest on a journey to Prescott, for Stoneman and his troops, constitute grounds for the designation of Cave Creek town founder in 1870? Let's explore the true founder of Cave Creek or at least the co-founder of Cave Creek and how it all started with the venerable Salt River. This exciting saga will be delivered by Kraig Nelson, Cave Creek Museum's historian, Nuggets' columnist for twelve years who has given presentations not only at the Museum but other venues around metropolitan Phoenix, YouTube, Johns Hopkins University, and over seven years at the only UNESCO World Heritage Site and National Historic Landmark (and Hohokam site) in the state of Arizona. Prepare to spend an exciting time on the edge of your seats listening to information never delivered before.
