Last week, I was excited to share that a unique ranch came available for sale in Congress, Arizona.  This beautiful 415-acre ranch has more to offer than meets the eye.

About Congress, Arizona and Surrounding Towns

Congress, Arizona, is in Yavapai County and is approximately 43 miles southwest of Prescott, near the towns of Peeples Valley, Yarnell, and Wickenburg along highway 89.

At the 2000 census, there were 1,717 people in Congress, AZ.  One of the cute and memorable landmarks for the town of Congress is its special rock formation. While traveling along Highway 89 between Wickenburg and Prescott, you’ll spy a 60-ton rock formation that resembles, and is painted bright green, to look like a frog. This memorable rock has been dutifully painted since 1928.

Congress serves as a retirement community to nearby Wickenburg. Each October, residents and visitors gathers to celebrate its history with Old Congress Days, which includes a parade, food, drag races, crafts, and more.

While you are in Congress, you will want to visit the local restaurant.  In the heart of this quiet town is Nichols West, a top-notch restaurant.  The restaurant is open seven days a week and serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and receives rave reviews.  Read more about Nichols West.

Congress is only 9 miles from Yarnell, Arizona.  When driving along Arizona Highway 89, you’ll know you’ve reached Yarnell when you are greeted by a sign that reads: “Where a desert breeze meets the mountain air.”  Though it is a tiny town, Yarnell has a surprisingly pleasant number of attractions for visitors. Highway 89 is full of shops offering antiques, gifts, and imported items.

Congress is only 16 miles from popular Wickenburg, Arizona.  Wickenburg has an approximate population of 6,500.  This western town is full of history, art galleries, and western décor shops.
