Brief History:

The history in Oak Creek Canyon is as rich as the banks of it’s creek. The Hohokam and Sinaguan Indians roamed the Red Rock Country at least 1500 years ago. Fishing and harvesting wild desert plants, their community and culture flourished from between 600AD to 1400AD. The “ancient” people then appeared to abandon the Oak Creek Canyon and the Verde Valley area to migrate north and east becoming after many generations the Hopi as well as other various pueblo tribes of Northern/Eastern Arizona and New Mexico.
After the departure of the Sinagua Indians from the area the Tonto Apache Indians settled in Oak Creek Canyon. The Tonto Apache Indians farmed the fertile soils, planting the “three sisters” of Indian agriculture, corn, beans and squash. In 1875 at the end of the Indian Wars in the Verde Valley, Al Seiber, Chief of Army Scouts with General Crook’s Division forced the Yavapai and Apache Indians out of Oak Creek Canyon relocating them to the San Carlos Reservation.
John James Thompson, a young immigrant from Ireland worked his way to the West in 1876 and staked a claim under the Homestead Act to a patch of land on Oak Creek. He discovered the remains and traces of their gardens and named the location, rightfully so “Indian Gardens”
