About Us

Located on the San Pedro River, north of Benson, Arizona.  A. Herron who founded the town named it Cascabel which means "bell or rattle".  While clearing the land he found a lot of rattlesnakes, hence the name.  The post office was established on June 13, 1916 and closed in 1936.   The ruins of the post office and several foundations can be found in the area.

Technically, Cascabel isn't a ghost town.   Home of a growing arts community there is an arts and crafts festival held every year in December.  Due to it's proximity to the San Pedro River and Benson, the population in the area is steadily growing.
