Town of Cave Creek Local Landmarks
The Town of Cave Creek is as diverse as its residents, local businesses, culture, entertainment and wildlife! In an effort to celebrate this and promote exploration of the unique places which have shaped and housed the Town’s vibrant character (and characters!), the Town of Cave Creek is launching Cave Creek Local Landmarks. Iconic buildings and spaces in Town are being recognized by a bronze plaque award which inter-connects the celebrated landmarks to a storytelling map. This map hosts destinations across Cave Creek for the public to explore virtually, physically, and throughout time— through the storytelling of Cave Creek’s pioneers, their descendants, and you; its residents and guests.
The first Cave Creek Local Landmark Award is being presented to Harold's Cave Creek Corrall before the Cave Creek Rodeo Days Dance on May 29th, from 9 pm - 10 pm Saturday evening. Admission for this ceremony is free of charge. Stay-tuned to the program as each of the first six Cave Creek Local Landmarks are celebrated each month.
Nominate a place in Town for consideration that is special to you. Have a restaurant that knows you by name? A building that has housed renditions of your favorite small businesses, over time? A place so famous (or infamous), you don’t need an address to get there? Name a destination that contributes to the Town's heritage by writing to: LocalLandmarks@CaveCreekAZ.gov . *The deadline for new nominations to be considered for the 2022 Local Landmark Awards is midnight on November 15th, 2021.
There are two primary ways you can explore and enjoy the Cave Creek Local Landmarks Interactive Storytelling Map. This map is a work in progress and ever-evolving. As the public submits stories and experiences from these cherished destinations, the Town of Cave Creek updates each celebrated destination's entry on the map.
