It’s a small cemetery but it’s been there for over a century; after all, Skull Valley has been around for a long time, at least in Arizona terms. Location: on the west side of Iron Springs Road just before the Santa Fe Railroad overpass as you approach Skull Valley from the North.

Situated in between Bagdad and Prescott, AZ, on the upper plateau that separates desert from forest lies a very small but very strange cemetery in the small town of Skull Valley. The tales of ghostly apparitions and dark shadowy figures have been seen by many that visit the location.

In 1915, Native American bones belonging to a Chieftain were discovered during construction of a well.

Two local Native American tribes were involved in a bloody battle over food between the Yavapai and Pima Indians in 1865 that ended in many deaths.
