McFarland State Historic Park

McFarland State Historic Park, is a seven-room adobe structure dedicated to sharing Arizona in its pre-statehood days. The history of the park's building provides visitors with a look into the past, representing a transition between Sonoran and Anglo-American architecture with its wood-shingled pitched roof surmounting traditional adobe brick walls. Like most buildings in Territorial Arizona, the original 1878 structure was constructed by hand using native materials.
