Special Features:The park's building represents a transition between Sonoran and Anglo-American architecture with its wood-shingled pitched roof and traditional adobe brick walls. During the 1800s the building was a courthouse and later a county hospital. Former governor Ernest W. McFarland purchased the building from the Pinal County Historical Society in 1974 and donated it to the Arizona State Parks Board for a historic park. In 1982 an archives building was completed and now houses his papers.
