Arizona territorial lines in red were very different from the current Arizona State back in 1863.
Notice that a northwest part of the territory was given to Nevada. That is the area where I entered Arizona on my trip by Hoover Dam.
This park was dedicated to Arizona Territory (1863 -1912)
Arizona was not admitted to the United States until 1912.
The park was just closing when I found it so I was not able to spend much time there. There were men and women in period costumes sitting around an open fire which really wasn't needed.
I did ask about the wheel on the front of the wagon - it was their spare tire back then.
