Settling Out West: Buckeye, Arizona

Share This Post

In 1877, a man named Thomas Newt Clanton led a party of six men, three women, and ten children from Creston, Iowa to the area we know today as Buckeye, Arizona. Like many before him, Mr. Clanton sought the desert climate’s healing properties.

It seems he found what he came for as he called Arizona home for another 49 years and passed at the age of 82.

Arizona has been a mecca for those seeking healing from our year round sunshine since before becoming a state.
