Frank “Mr. Cave Creek” Wright

He was known as “Mr. Cave Creek.”  When Frank W. Wright passed in 1982 at the age of eighty-nine, he had lived in Cave Creek for sixty years.  You will see his name on the sign at The American Legion Post #34. Mr. Wright founded and helped build the Legion Post in 1934. Additionally, he brought the first street lights and Water Company to the growing town.  The Cave Creek Museum and neighboring church are grateful to Frank and his wife Hazel, as the Wright’s donated the land for both buildings.
