If you come up from Lake Pleasant make sure you are one of Arizona's better 4WD ers! The easier way is to come down from Crown King.

One building remains and much evidence of inhabitants.

Fort Misery Remains

Al Francis built Fort Misery as his home while he lived in the Bradshaw Mountains. Al was in charge of hauling ore from Oro Belle to Crown King. He jokingly called his home "Fort Misery" and the name stuck. Francis was responsible, along with Burro John, for putting up William Bell "Kentuck"'s grave headstone. Fort Misery was inhabited through the 1920's.
