Five archeological sites were located during an archeological study of the Lake Pleasant area.
Included in these five archeological sites were a defensive site, a stone workshop, a farmhouse, and two small villages. Undoubtedly many more sites were once present along the Agua Fria but have gone under the waters of Lake Pleasant.
The five sites located during the study were occupied during the period A. In the park area, high bluffs rise directly from the bed of the river, greatly restricting the amount of area available for prehistoric habitation and agriculture. Despite this restriction, the area was apparently fairly heavily populated during prehistoric times, as sites were located on almost every flat terrace close to the river. The Lake Pleasant Regional Park area, while historically part of the mining and range industries of Central Arizona, had no ificant influence upon either.
Prospectors met only with frustration. The few mines that did exist in the Lake Pleasant area were short-term projects. There was no lack of prospectors who roamed the area in hopes of finding their bonanzas.
Mollie Sawyer Monroe and Jacob Snively were among the more colorful. Mollie Monroe, an eccentric female prospector during the 's and early 's, was a co-discoverer, along with her common-law husband George Monroe and others, of Castle Hot Springs. In Mollie was sent to Stockton, California, where Arizona's mental patients were kept, after being declared insane. She died in at the State Hospital in Phoenix. Jacob Snively, a man of unbounded energy as a prospector in California and Arizona and long notorious for his leading part in the Texas Revolution, prospected the area about the same time as Mollie Monroe.
Snively was killed by Big Rump Wa-poo-i-taan Apache chieftain, in near the White Picacho, a prominent landmark about 18 miles northwest of the Park.
Evidence of extensive interest in mineral possibilities is visible in numerous prospect holes in the area, but a search of mining claims and claimants at the Maricopa County Recorder's office reveals only a few mining locations filed in the Park boundaries. Home Park Information History.
