Street Art of Benson, Arizona

Cactus painting, Benson, AZ

“Founded in 1880 prior to Arizona’s mining boom, Benson developed as a stopping point for the Butterfield Overland Stage mail delivery route.  Soon thereafter, the Southern Pacific Railroad came into Benson and continued to serve the area until 1997, when the line was purchased by Union Pacific Railroad.”

Benson, Arizona was a stop on my 10,000 + mile trip a few years ago.  The artwork helps to illustrate much of the history in the area.  This link you take you to the page with the artwork
