The Yavapai Court House has been built, rebuilt, moved, rebuilt again, etc. The 4.1 acre plaza around the courthouse first came into being in 1864. This is one of the most impressive, prettiest court houses and plazas I have seen. The plaza has been a center of life in Prescott since it was first built. It has several nice sculptures and lots of tress. It is a great place to escape the hustle and bustle and just relax.
Prescott also boasts some fine museums. The Smoki Museum is built in the style of a Hopi Pueblo, and houses a nice collection of Native American pottery, art and other artifacts. Just north of town is the famous Phippen Museum with its collection of fine art. The Fort Whipple Museum is located on the grounds of the VA Medical Center, and portrays the history of the old fort. Probably the best museum in town though is the Sharlot Hall Museum which has several historic buildings with original artifacts and nice displays showing the history of the town and the area. The museum is very well done and well worth a visit.
Across the street from the Yavapai County Court House is the area known as Whiskey Row. There used to be 50 bars and saloons along this road. Today there are still some fine bars here; but they are mingled with trendy shops, bistros, and other businesses.
