McFarland

State Historic Park - Arizona

The history of the park's building provides visitors with a look into the past. The building represents a transition between Sonoran and Anglo-American architecture with its wood-shingled pitched roof surmounting traditional adobe brick walls. Like most buildings in Territorial Arizona, the original 1878 structure was constructed by hand using native materials. Soil from the area was used to make adobe bricks which were laid on a trench foundation filled with river rocks. All lumber for the floors and roof was hauled by wagon from northern Arizona.

More Than a Courthouse This adobe brick building, now McFarland State Historic Park, has served many roles since its construction in 1878. It was the county courthouse, sheriff’s office, and jail until converting to a county hospital in 1891. P.O. Box 109 Florence, AZ 85232 (520) 868-5216 McFarland Museum & Library Archives The park is named after Ernest W. McFarland, who purchased the property and donated it to the park system in 1974. “Mac” was a former Arizona Governor and signed the bill that created Arizona State Parks in 1957.
