Congress

Congress

 

A small town located along Highway 89 between Wickenburg and Prescott, Congress originally came to life when a miner struck gold here in 1884. The addition of a post office and nearby Santa Fe Railroad added to the growing town until the mines closed in the 1930. Today Congress adds to the list of Arizonan ghost towns and serves as a retirement community to nearby Wickenburg
