Skull Valley Store Closes
The Stakehouse in Kirkland was very rustic, a bit too rustic for my taste. We had a nice time visiting with the employee and noticed we were the only ones there. She took us around and gave us the haunted history of the place. That night, we both experienced hearing an old-time piano playing in the main room. The problem was, there was no piano.
The next day, we decided to visit Skull Valley because it was only 7 miles away. We were very curious to see what a town with the name "Skull Valley" would look like. We pictured it to be desolate, with old rundown buildings. We were surprised to find a "Mayberrish" place with quaint homes, cafe, and a general store. Sadly, that store is going to be closing its doors after 100 years of service. Personally, I hope someone buys the place and keeps it going. These days, you just don't see many of these small general stores around the state of Arizona.
