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.
Browse through the archives of the McFarland papers to delve into the extensive workings of one of the most influential politicians in Arizona history, Ernest McFarland. Call ahead and you can set up a guided walking tour through the building to hear more about the building’s storied past.
Located just over 60 miles southeast of Phoenix, McFarland State Historic Park makes a great day trip.
