TOWN OF CLARKDALE

Facts & Figures

 

 

 

History

The original town site was constructed as a company town for the United Verde Copper

Company whose mine was located in Jerome. United Verde was owned by William A. Clark.

A smelter facility to process the ore mined in Jerome was one of the first facilities constructed

at the confluence of Bitter Creek and the Verde River.

The original town site included several different residential neighborhoods, a central business

district that included support services for the residences, a motel,  a park, a hospital and a school.

Two churches were also constructed during this time period.

Construction, including water and wastewater system infrastructure, began in 1912 and continued

through the late 20ís.

The Clark Memorial Clubhouse, a memorial to William A. Clark, was one of the last buildings

completed. The Clubhouse, open to Clarkdale residents, included an auditorium, ladies lounge,

kitchen, reading room/library, menís lounge, bowling alley and outdoor swimming pool.

Today the Clubhouse still serves as a community facility.

From the 1930ís to the 1950ís the ownership of Clarkdale changed hands several times. In the

early 1950ís the mine and smelter facility were closed. Clarkdale was then owned by Phelps Dodge

Corporation and was sold to Erle Halliburton in 1955.

Residents of Clarkdale formed a Clarkdale Community Betterment Association and the town was

incorporated in 1957.

The original town site is recognized as a Historic District on the National Register.
