CARROLLTON: Verde Valley Settlement

"The new town of Carrollton, of which Thomas Carroll is the founder, is progressing quite satisfactorily and promises to become quite a respectable sized village in the near future. It is located across the Verde valley opposite Jerome and is only seven miles distant from the latter place. It has already a store, a blacksmith shop and mill for manufacturing corn meal, Jerome receiving its supply from here. There is a splendid water power here and it is said that Thomas Carroll will erect a small flouring mill this fall to be driven by this power. It is centrally located, there being a large section of agricultural land. ... Application has already been made for a post office here and it is given out that it will soon be established. ..." (Arizona Weekly Journal-Miner; Prescott; March 21, 1894; page 1, c. 8.)

"A man named Hamilton has arranged for building a flouring mill at Carrollton, on the Verde river. He expects to have it built in time to grind the corn crop this winter, and will arrange to grind wheat next season." (Arizona Weekly Journal-Miner; Prescott; November 28, 1894; page 3, c. 3.)
