In 1882, Sharlot Mabridth Hall (b. October 27, 1870, d. April 9, 1943) moved from Lincoln County, Kansas to Arizona. She moved twelve miles southeast of Prescott, Arizona at Lynx Creek, with her father, James Knox Hall, her mother, Adeline Susannah Hall, and her brother, Edward "Ted" V. Hall.

Sharlot became a poet, a writer, a journalist, an associate editor of "Out West" magazine, and served as Arizona's Territorial Historian from 1909-1912. In addition, she became the first steward and curator of the Arizona Governor's Mansion in Prescott, which she eventually turned into a Museum beginning in 1928. Today, she is the namesake of the Sharlot Hall Museum.
