About the Vulture Gold Mine
The Goldwaters and the Vulture Mine

Michael Goldwater, one of the financiers of the first Vulture stamp mill, saw opportunity in Arizona in 1862. He began supplying the new mining industry by transporting needed goods across the California desert. Michael and his brother Joe hauled freight to and from Prescott, and opened up new stores in several boomtowns, including Wickenburg and Seymour. The Goldwaters' business grew into a chain of department stores across the Southwest. Michael’s grandson, Barry, gained prominence as a senator from Arizona, and as the Republican candidate for President in 1964.
