mccondra Posted July 13, 2008 Report Share Posted July 13, 2008 One block off the main highway 69 to Prescott and only 8 miles from the I 17 and 69 turnoff, Mayer, AZ the geograpphic heart of Arizona, is a small town america town of the West. Historical houses are tucked away throughout part of the town but the downtown "old town" portion is located at 12780 Central Avenue. Well worth a look. The red brick building housed a saloon, dancehall, mercantile store, and barbershop when built. Across the street is the old white hotel and two doors down the red brick "cribs" or brothel. the old bank and post office are there too. the town is small population about 1400 and a slow drive about will show you it's historic flavor. the town is please dnot to have become commercialized and is still small town America where children can ride their bikes down its main street. There is no restaurant but info on the compimentary coffe shop with sweeties and cool drinks with microwaveable sandwhiches or two is a joy.
