Image of the Arizona Territorial Governor's Mansion in Prescott, Arizona with Judge Henry Fleury sitting on porch.  This image is similar to 1403.0534.0003, but this is a sepia tone postcard.

The Governor’s Mansion is the oldest building associated with the Arizona Territory still standing on its original location. Built as a log cabin in 1864, it was the center of Arizona’s territorial government from 1864-1867.

The Mansion and 160 acres surrounding it were owned by Richard McCormick, who was first territorial secretary and then governor from 1864-1867. In 1867, McCormick sells 160 acres, including the site of the Mansion, to Henry Waring Fleury and Loran S. Jenks. In 1873, H.W.  Fleury and Loran S. Jenks default on their payments to McCormick. The parcel, including the site of the Governor’s Mansion, was sold back to McCormick at a Sheriff’s sale.

In 1876 Fleury obtained a land patent from the US Government. Apparently McCormick’s original claim was defective. The property became known as Fleury’s Addition to the Town of Prescott.
