Cherry is a mining ghost town in central Yavapai County, Arizona, United States, between Dewey and Camp Verde, located at an elevation of 5143 feet.[1]


Cherry's post office was established March 3, 1884 and discontinued March 15, 1943. Notable mines in the area include the Federal, Bunker, Sunnybrook, Logan and Gold Bullion[2] mines. About 400 people lived and worked in Cherry during its prime. At present, Cherry is a small retirement and vacation-home community. A number of the original buildings are still in use. The Cherry cemetery has several graves from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
