One of the many iconic views of Camp Verde is the portion of Montezuma Castle Highway known as Pecan Lane. The stately row of pecan trees was planted by Eva Haydon, daughter-in-law of landowner Noah Haydon, in 1927-1928. Intended as a cash crop for her family, the trees have, over the years, yielded considerably more benefits to the community.
In May 2000, the Pecan Lane Rural Historic Landscape was added to the National Register of Historic Places. Read more about the interesting history of Pecan Lane, as well as Camp Verde’s agricultural history, on the National Register of Historic Places Registration Form.
