Connect to the Past with Carefree Historic Properties

Historic homes in Carefree speak of a complex past, a story that incorporates many of the great elements of Arizona history. Originally no more than a wagon road feeding the westward push of the gold rush, the town gradually arose as settlers realized the land's potential for ranching. In 1874 a gold strike that quickly developed into the Mistress Mine increased the town's viability, and a post office sprang up as settlers tried mining, ranching and agriculture. Nearby water sources allowed irrigation, and the town took off as a general store and a schoolhouse were established to serve the community. Growth slowed until the 1930s and ’40s, when home building took off again, giving rise to many of the homes of today.
