Governor's arrival re-enactment today
Chino Valley Review

To see a living history presentation of the 150th anniversary of Arizona's first government near Chino Valley, people can attend the re-enactment Wednesday, 10:30 a.m.-2 p.m., at the current Del Rio Ranch north of town. Admission is free, as well as a free chuck wagon lunch; RSVP needed.

The Chino Valley Historical Society will present a re-enactment of the arrival of Gov. John Goodwin and his party on Jan. 22, 1864, as part of the area's sesquicentennial observance.

The event will be inside a heated tent at the ranch, 3.6 miles north of Road 3 North off Highway 89 (turn right and follow road around to parking areas and follow signs to event), and is sponsored by the ranch owners, Bob O'Rear and Jim Brown. The ranch is the site of the original Fort Whipple.

Activities include historic displays, an historic presentation by John Krizek and members of the Chino Valley Sesquicentennial Committee and a portrayal of Gov. Goodwin's arrival by Neil Thomas of the Prescott Regulators, complete with 18-gun salute! Other re-enactors are from various groups, including the Arizona Roughriders.

RSVP for the free chuck wagon lunch by calling 928-636-1622 or email
