If you are new to Arizona Place Names you may want to take a moment to read the About Page to get an idea of what this blog is about and what I am trying to accomplish. Thanks, Peggy

Capitol Butte, AZ

Capitol Butte

Yavapai Co.

Map, Coconino N. F., 1928.

In sec. 2, T. 17 N., R. 5 E.  "Nobody seems to know where this butte got the name,  'Capitol.'  People at Sedona say it was once called 'Judge Otey's Tombstone' because the Judge frequently remarked he would like to be buried at what is now known as Capitol Butte."  Letter, Ed. Miller, Forest Supervisor.
