It's hard to believe, but at the beginning of the 20th century the Clifton/Morenci area was home to more people than Phoenix. And at the center of the area's activity was Chase Creek Street.
While the brothels and other houses of ill repute may be gone (we think), the memory of that bygone era lives on in the historic storefronts and small businesses that still line this famous Arizona street.
Be sure to visit the Historical Museum and the many fine and unique shops along the way. For more information, please visit the website of the Business Association of Chase Creek Street, Arizona at visitcliftonaz.com.
