Cave Creek has a rich archeological history that dates back to ancient days when Hohokam Indians lived here; also in the early to mid 1800s Tonto Apaches controlled the area until ranchers, farmers and miners settled the territory in 1870. Today the independent spirit of the Old West lives on and "Creekers" are proud that there's a balance of horses and cars here. It has a population of less than 5,000 who strive to maintain its western heritage.Globe - History too is a big part of Globe, a town that got its name back in 1876 when a huge nugget of silver that resembled a globe was discovered by miners. Here we visit the historic Gila County Jail, see the famous Hanging Tree, which is sponsored by the local mortuary, and visit the majestic Noftsger Hill Inn, a former school house, situated high above the Cobre Valley in the shadow of the Old Dominion mine. The Tonto Indian Ruins - Northwest from Globe is the Tonto National Monument, established by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1907, and the southernmost cliff dwellings in Arizona, which were constructed by the Salado people between A.D. 1150 and 1450. Here we get a unique opportunity to walk through the original rooms, which once housed a thriving community.
