The history of Prescott dates to 1863 when gold was discovered in the mountains of central Arizona. Miners flocked to the area to seek their fortunes. Prescott, situated in the center of the region, was designated the territorial capital. In 1927, El Paso architect Henry Trost was challenged by a group of local citizens to design a grand hotel that would become the cornerstone of downtown Prescott. After the foundation was laid, Trost was further challenged to modify the previously approved Pueblo-style facade to a more simple brick design. He opted for an eclectic mix of Spanish Colonial Revival and Italianate exterior rendered red brick trimmed in white and topped by a bell tower. Along with the elegant Porte Cochere- the covered passage way into the hotel- the 1927 vintage elevator is one of the most memorable things about the Hassayampa Inn. The historic inn has lived up to its original challenge and remains a prominent facet of community life. Hassayampa Inn, a member of Historic Hotels of America since 1996, dates back to 1927.
