Oracle, Arizona
Oracle, Arizona

Oracle was named in 1878 for a ship built in Bath, Maine. The story goes that Albert Weldon, a west coast prospector, survived a terrible storm off of the Cape of Good Hope on board the very same ship. In gratitude, Weldon named his first mining claim “The Oracle” which the town later adopted as its own. As a ‘sky island’ situated at 4,500 feet, Oracle boasts a temperate climate and an array of natural features, such as oak stands, tall grasses, rock outcroppings, canyons, veins of ore and breathtaking views. These features have drawn settlers to the region for over 10,000 years. Visit this beautiful mountain location to explore the colorful history of the area.
