The Maricopa Hotel was owned and operated by Arthur Deal (pictured with his son) from 1917 to 1931. Called Edwards Hotel in the 1890s and McCarthy House in the 1900s, the hotel burned in 1931 along with the depot.

Today, at least for now, NAPA Auto Parts sits on the foundation of the old Maricopa Hotel. In between, the location was also a small grocery store and blacksmith shop.
