"King of Arizona"

Parker was carved out of the Colorado River Indian Reservation in the early 1900's. The railroad selected this location to span the mighty Colorado River into California. We are not sure how the town got its name. Some say it was for the first Indian Commissioner, Ely Samuel Parker. Others claim Earl H. Parker, a railroad engineer. People moved to Parker to work the railroad and support those who did, and the town began to grow. Many people who arrived as children in early years have raised their own families here in Parker and remain a part of this active community. Between 1896 and 1910, the King Mine was the most successful gold mine in Arizona, with total production of four million dollars. Arizona was still a territory then. The owner of the mine had political ambitions and he made sure that all of his employees were registered voters and that they voted for him! After suspiciously winning an election, the editor of the "Arizona Sentinel" said, "Who does he think he is? The King of Arizona?"

Thereafter, a mountain range, streets and many schools were named "Kofa" for the King of Arizona.
