AAA Editor Notes

Superstition Mountains, e. of town off Apache Trail (SR 88), were named for the many legends surrounding them. The fabled Lost Dutchman Gold Mine lies somewhere in these mountains. Whether the mine really exists is uncertain. At least eight men were killed because of it, and many others died searching for it. Monuments at Roosevelt Dam and Apache Junction commemorate Jacob Waltz, who allegedly discovered the mine.
