The Orchard Ranch

Sharlot Hall’s family homestead, called Orchard Ranch, was located in what is now the site of the Orchard Ranch RV Park on Hwy. 69 east of Prescott Valley. This is where the former Kansas girl earned the title of ranch woman as the caretaker of the homestead as well as of her aging parents.

An informational kiosk stands at the entrance of the property with highlights of the Hall family as well as the Fain family that acquired much of the ranch acreage. The site includes a cabin made of wood from the Hall home, built as a partnership with the Prescott Valley Historical Society, a local chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution and Sharlot Hall Museum. Residents of the RV park maintain the kiosk as a sign of their pride in the importance of the area’s history.
