Tyson's Well

Dug by hand around 1864 by a miner named Tyson. This 40-foot-deep well marked the spot around which grew the town of Quartzsite. Originally know as "Tyson's Well," "Tyson Wells," or "Tyson's Wells," the small community served as an important watering and resupply point along the Old Ehrenberg-Prescott freight-hauling and stagecoach route.
