Clarkdale, AZ Tourism
Home to the Verde Canyon Railroad, Clarkdale was laid out in 1914 near the site of the existing smelter built in 1910. It processed ore from nearby Jerome until 1952. Clarkdale was Arizona’s first company town built with modern amenities. The mining and smelter sites, along with the Clarkdale Memorial Clubhouse, are listed on the National Register of Historic Sites. Clarkdale also hosts a number of community events including an art festival and Independence Day celebration.
