Summary Wickenburg, one of Arizona's true treasures, is proud of its Old West heritage; named for Henry Wickenburg, an Austrian immigrant and miner, the town's mainstays today are ranching and tourism. In this program we visit the Desert Caballeros Western Museum that features Native American and 19th and 20th century Western American paintings and sculptures; we learn the story behind the controversial Wickenburg Stage Robbery of 1871; also we see the mesquite Jail Tree, which is over 200 years old and once served as the town's Jail.Robson's Mining World - Located in the Harcuvar Mountains, Robson's Mining World takes us back in time to see what an Old West gold mining town was like during the 1800's. Here visitors pan for gold and explore more than 30 historic buildings, including the Nella-Meda Museum, which include the world's largest collection of antique mining equipment, a general store, a barber, newspaper and post office; also the Gold Leaf Saloon and Litsch's Bed and Breakfast. Commemorative Air Force - The Commemorative Air Force, long known as the Confederate Air Force, is a worldwide, all volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation in flying condition of the great warplanes that dominated the skies during World War II. The Arizona Wing of this honored group manages the Confederate Air Force Museum at Falcon Field in Mesa, which is home to the authentically restored World War II B-17 bomber, the "Sentimental Journey," as well as a B-25 Mitchell bomber, SNJ, C-45, and a Grumman Guardian.
