Cave Creek, Arizona, located in Maricopa County, high above Phoenix in the foothills of Black Mountain, Skull Mesa, and Elephant Butte, is a town that has a “wild west” character. Even though it is located close to Phoenix and Scottsdale, 2 rapidly growing and populous cities in Arizona, it has maintained a community reminiscent of what things looked like in Arizona in the wild west long ago.
Cave Creek was established as a gold mining town in the mid 1870’s. It was a stopping point for the United States Cavalry. Some buildings still standing in Cave creek have been there as long as anyone can remember —a preservation of the olden days.
