The place burned down in the great fire of July 1, 1900. After it was rebuilt by. The Palace Hotel and Bar, was complete with Chinese restaurant and barber shop after it was rebuilt in.  

The Prescott National Forest

Comprised of about 1.25 million acres, the Prescott National Forest is one of the most alluring attractions we have! Portions of the Prescott National Forest today are much the same as they were when Sam Miller panned for gold in Lynx Creek and was wounded by a cougar, or when General Crook's flag fluttered over Palace Station 

Goldwater Lake

Goldwater Lake at Goldwater Park is located just a four miles from downtown Prescott. It is a small lake with 15 acres of water surface, but features tons of family fun with park recreation and picnic facilities. The lake is small but has great views and perfect waters for canoeing and kayaking and also features a great hiking trail. It is open all year 

A Snowy Day At The Lake

One of the great things about "Preskitt" are our four mild seasons. Does it snow? You bet, but most times is just a few inches. Enough to turn us into a Winter Wonder Land. Then, it melts away.
