Castle Hot Springs also served as the first territorial capital of Arizona as well as a retreat for many wealthy businessmen, politicians, and even presidents of the United States.

During its time as the territorial winter capital of the Arizona Territory, Castle Hot Springs was both the residence of the Territorial Governor and a local jail. Castle Hot Springs attracted many of America's wealthiest and most well-known families, including the Rockefellers, Carnegies, Cabots, and the Wrigleys.
