The town of Clarkdale, Arizona is located 90 minutes north of Phoenix and twenty miles southwest of the beautiful Red Rocks of Sedona, Arizona.
It is a thriving community and is the gateway to the Sycamore Canyon Wilderness Area in the beautiful Verde Valley.
Founded in 1912, Clarkdale is renowned as the first master planned community in the State of Arizona. Originally a"company town", Clarkdale was founded by the United Verde Copper Company to provide housing and services for the employees of their copper smelter. The extensive smelter complex was located near the Verde River and processed copper ore that was brought down from the mines in Jerome from 1913 - 1953.
Today, the original town site of Clarkdale is recognized as a Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places. Clarkdale remains a model of good urban planning today. The estimated population in 2005 was 3,680.
Clarkdale is home to the Yavapai College Verde Campus, the Northern Arizona Regional Skill Center and the Small Business Development Center and soon, the new Academic Resource Center. High school students in Clarkdale attend Mingus Union High School, and the Clarkdale-Jerome School boasts an excellent reputation for educating our students from Kindergarten through Eighth grade.
The Verde River bisects the north portion of the town at a low elevation of around 3,300 feet. The west side of the town boundary is located along the foothills of Mingus Mountain in the Black Hills Range at a high elevation of approximately 4,600 feet above sea level.
On the northeast border of Clarkdale, the National Park service operates the 42-acre Tuzigoot National Monument, an 800 year old Sinagua pueblo, which is surrounded by hiking trails and hosts a complete museum. Tavasci Marsh borders Tuzigoot National Monument and has been designated as an Important Birding Area by the North American Audubon Society.
