Avenue of Flags, benches, fountain, historic cemeteries. Pioneer and Military Memorial Park serves as a monument to the pioneer families of Arizona. The park's historic cemeteries are the final resting place to notable figures in Arizona history and folklore, including John T. Alsap, who was the first Maricopa County Probate Judge in 1871 and first Mayor of Phoenix in 1881. Jacob Waltz, the Dutchman of Superstition Mountain fame, also rests here. A monument to Waltz includes a simulation of Weaver's Needle and some of the imposing bluffs that serve as landmarks of the famous Superstition Wilderness. Waltz and his legendary "Lost Dutchman" gold mine have become part of the internationally-known folklore of the southwestern United States.
