Wickenburg was founded in 1863 and named after Henry Wickenburg, who also founded Vulture Mine. He was a farmer and prospector who donated or sold much of his land in the area where Wickenburg now sits. Surrounding the city is Weaver Mountains, named after Pauline Weaver, with Vulture Mine nearby. Sadly, Vulture Mine is still closed but we were able to get pictures from the outside which I will post later.
If you find yourself in Wickenburg, check out the chamber of Commerce, grabbed a brochure from the nice people working there, and take a walk around town to check out all the historical sites.
