Palace Station reportedly dates back to 1874-1875, when the Spence family started building a log cabin. A July 1878 advertisement in the Weekly Miner announced the news of the opening: “Palace Station! Accommodations for all. Half way from Prescott to Peck (Mine).”

The station was operated by Alfred B. Spence and his family through about 1910, and the site came into the public domain in the Prescott National Forest in 1963.
