Old Western Jailhouse in Black and White Fine Art Print
In the 1880’s this was a stage stop. During the Arizona Territory days, Reata Pass was on an old stagecoach stop along a dust-filled, rocky trail that wandered often steeply uphill northeast from Phoenix and on to connect Fort McDowell on the Verde River and Prescott. Crossing the McDowell Mountains in those days was no easy task as the climb took its toll on the passengers and horses. Travelers were treated to a hearty meal and cool drink while the horses were being watered, The old jailhouse is original and was used in the 1880’s to hold Indian prisoners.
