Mountain Range is the place where the famous Vulture Mine
was discovered by Henry Wickenburg in 1863. The Vulture
Mine is said to be the most productive gold mine in Arizona.
It is also one of the earliest gold mines in Arizona drawing
the California Forty-Niners east to the new Territory. Active
on and off until the war effort of 1942 shut down gold mines
all over the United States it produced gold worth over $2,000,000.
