The unincorporated community of Crown King, Arizona, is in Yavapai County. Located in the center of the state, Crown King is a pretty small community with only a population of 133 as of the 2000 census. Once a vibrant community due to the gold mine nearby, Crown King is now known only as a tourist spot. It is estimated that two million dollars in gold was excavated from the Crowned King Mine alone, but the mines in the area have been closed since the 1950s. During its heyday as a mining town, the Bradshaw Mountain Railroad served Crown King but by 1926, the railroad was abandoned due to financial failure.
