Clarkdale, Arizona is a historic community 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.
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.
Clarkdale's bungalow homes are unique to view, they were built when William Clark owned the town and today stand as a testiment to Clark's vision.
