Shadow Rock Ranch is seven remote sections of land west and south of Seligman, Arizona. It was developed in three phases of lots of 36 or more acres each. Most of the lots are heavily treed with numerous Juniper and Pinion Pine trees. Many have bluffs and rock outcroppings.  I believe that Shadow Rock Ranch was named for this rock.Shadow Rock Ranch lies within Township 21N and Range 7W in the northern part of Yavapai which is also in northern Arizona. It includes Sections 19-21 and 27-30.Access to the area is via Interstate Highway 40 at exit 109, south on Anvil Rock Road to left on Our Street. I suspect Our street refers to the property owners of Shadow Rock Ranch. Our Street provides legal access to the development. Elevations range from around 5,500 feet on the east end of the develo...

I list and sell land parcels in Arizona.  I am often asked why the development occurs in a checkerboard pattern.When the railroads were being developed, the railroads were given twelve square miles of land for each mile of track that was laid. The railroads were not given the land in contiguous tracts, but were given odd numbered sections only. This checkerboard land pattern of land use exists in many western states.In Arizona, at least in some areas, the remaining land eventually was given to the Arizona State Land Trust and was for the benefit of our school systems. Income for the schools is still derived by grazing leases of these lands. In the areas with the checkerboard pattern still intact, the public land provides around 50% open space.  Much of the privately held land, which was...

Seligman, Arizona is a little-known, tiny town located between Flagstaff and Kingman on Interstate Highway 40. It is known as "The birthplace of Route 66" because it is located on one of the first, if not the first stretch of Route 66, the first transcontinental highway.  The town was an important railroad town in the last quarter of the ninteenth century. Until recently, the Harvey House was an important landmark. This building was a combination railroad station, restaurant and hotel.The town is located near the northern boundary of Yavapai County with Coconino County. Some of the nearby land has been developed and sold as recreational properties. These developments, southwest of Seligman, include Sierra Verde Ranch, Shadow Rock Ranch and Juniper Mountain Ranches. These developments we...

There are many wild burros in northern Arizona. These are leftover from the prospecting days, descendents of those left behind when miners of old passed away or left the area. I know where many of the burros live and enjoy taking their pictures when I see them.     Sometimes they are obliging and pose for me.

The Seligman Historical Society Building is in need of renovation.  The 2009 Seligman Historical Society Phone Directory is the only fund raising method used to fund the project. Nancy and I are listed in this directory because we both believe in preserving our historic buildings.  The Society is housed in the Cottage Hotel, built circa 1912 by Mrs. Anna Spencer.  The front part of the hotel was used as living quarters and the remaining rooms rented to cowboys and railroaders.  Besides being a boarding house, te cottage Hotel was used as a birthing place for expectant mothers. On February 12, 1998 the State Historic Preservation Office in Phoenix declared the hotel a historical landmark.
