Finding Cabot Yerxa
Cabot had the vision to create a city and with three homesteads and other pioneers created a city in the desert that today is home to nearly 30,000 people. And Cabot’s Pueblo Museum has been declared a national monument.
However there is much more to this story. Cabot had three homesteads, the first on property near the Two Bunch Palms watering hole, the second on the east side of Miracle Hill where he ran his trading post. The third and last homestead was established in 1952.
It is our objective to explore these two other properties revealing more of Cabot Yerxa.
