Located at the base of Cleopatra
Hill, Clarkdale, Arizona is a former company town located in the Verde
Valley. Founded by William A. Clark, the owner of one of Jerome, Arizona's
largest copper mines, Clarkdale was one of the country's best "company" towns.
The Town of Clarkdale is situated in the Verde Valley, located in the North
Central part of Arizona. The Town was founded in 1912 and was the first planned
community in the State of Arizona. Clarkdale was a "company town" owned by the
United Verde Copper Company and provided housing and services for its employees
who worked in the nearby smelter. Mining operations were discontinued in 1953
and Clarkdale was incorporated in 1957
Today the old smelter
lies quiet and Clarkdale is best described as a bedroom community, it's
downtown now occupied by antique shops and restaurants rather then grocery and
hardware stores and meat markets.
homes are unique to view, they were built when William Clark owned the town and
today stand as a testiment to Clark's vision.
