Founded in 1895, Seligman, Arizona, boasts a history to match the colorful sunsets of the desert southwest. Situated in the middle of cattle country among the beautiful Upland Mountains, Seligman was originally established as a railroad camp to bring valuable communication and transportation lines to the West. During the late 1920s, historic Route 66 created an “American Main Street” through the middle of our town and added yet another chapter to our eclectic history. Instrumental in this legendary route’s revival, today Seligman proudly displays the flavors of our past while embracing the changes necessary to our future.
We invite you to get to know our town a little better and discover what treasures may be hiding around the next bend.
In Seligman, there’s never a shortage of things to do. Please visit our Seligman Chamber of Commerce website for more information about various city businesses and resources.
