Underground Prescott by Patricia Ireland-Williams

Join the Phippen Museum at 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 27, as author Patricia Ireland-Williams offers another fascinating historical review of the catacombs, tunnels, speakeasies, opium dens and bordellos of Prescott’s past. She’ll be joined by professional photographer Bobbi Jane Tucker for an exploration of the hidden and mysterious passageways and warrens of Everybody’s Hometown.

They’ll explore the enigmatic areas below Prescott that are no longer accessible to the public.

A native of Phoenix, Ireland-Williams spent many summers in Prescott and moved here with her husband in 2006. She has been a docent for the Yavapai College Sculpture Garden and is the past president of the Prescott Pines Questers, a historical and preservation group. Tucker was born in Kansas but raised in Tucson. She now lives in Prescott and is the owner of Way Out West Photography, LLC.
