Thought of the day Dwayne Warrick: Team work: An awful lot like giving birth to an elephant! It always starts at a high level. It’s accomplished with a lot of trumpeting and screaming. It takes 22 months to grow and develop. And then you have a baby elephant to take care of. Sgt. at arms Par wood fined Pres. Jerry for closing his eyes during the Pledge and everyone else for being slow to sit down.
Speaker 12/18/2019 Brad Courtney, Whiskey Row Historian
Brad taught school for 31 years, was a guide on the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon, has a Masters’ degree in history and stated he has a B.S. in religion.
 Brad and his wife moved to Prescott in 2011. He became interested in the history of Whiskey Row and finding no books on the subject, began researching the subject at Charlotte hall and through newspapers dating from 1864 to1900. He has written a series of books on the subject,   with a new one to be released in February 2020.    
Prescott was uncharted or mapped until gold was discovered by the Walker party along Lynx Creek in1863.
The first saloon consisting of 2 whiskey barrels with a plank between them, was started by Isaac Goldberg in 1864. He had 2 bottles of whiskey and sold it by the dram from a tin cup for 50 cents. The “ saloon “ was first located near Granite Creek but a few men fell into the creek, so the business was moved to Montezuma near what is now Mile High middle school. Goldberg started the first liquor store and restaurant called the Juniper House, in a 12 x 15 Foot building with split pine log tables that oozed sap. In 1864 William hardy opened a mercantile store and saloon on what is now the corner of Gurley and Granite streets serving a higher grade of whiskey and was the first  soiree  with 12 women dancers. Albert Noyes built a two story saloon / meeting hall twice destroyed by monsoons but was eventually completed in 1864. From 1864 through 1867 many saloons were built and later destroyed by fire. In 1888 the Palace burned down and was rebuilt with brick, stone and iron.
