Historical Significance: The site where the flag of the first governor, John A Goodwin, was flown.
In 1929, Sharlot M Hall was presented the flagpole and flag of the first governor of Arizona. Regent Florence Herndon Russell said. "Its presence told of the loyalty, love and courage of those who came here so long ago to establish a new territory in the wilderness." Dressed in a colonial gown, Mrs. Russell expressed the desire of the two-year-old chapter to "bring back to the mansion something of its early customs, part of which was the flag flying from dawn to dusk each day."
