Yes, all us steel horse cowboys and cowgirls know the way to Cave Creek and our favorite places to catch some entertainment. We all have our favorite forms of entertainment too – people watching, scoot looking and opposite sex ogling. Hey, I enjoy all those things too but I also enjoy the ability to get some knowledge of the places I visit.
How about some history about this fine town we all love to visit. Coming in to town going north along Cave Creek Rd. take a right turn at Skyline Dr. This just past Oreganos. Follow it and when it makes a left hand turn, keep your eyes open for the entrance to the Cave Creek Museum 6140 E Skyline Drive.
Go to their website – cavecreekmuseum.org – for the their hours of operation. On my visit, I timed it all wrong and they were closed but thanks to a very understanding Executive Director, I was afforded a personal and in depth tour of the museum. There are many authentic displays of the past to view outside. The original first church in Cave Creek and the original stamp press from the mine that was located about 18 miles away. Yes, gold was mined right here in Cave Creek. The inside is divided into separate rooms each dedicated to a specific theme. Where you will be able to view a mock up of an old mining camp as well as and Indian pueblo. But the big adventure happens inside.
