Tom Mix Monument


category : Monuments
Tom Mix Monument October 12, 1940, was a sad day for fans of movie hero Tom Mix. Heading north from Tucson in his big Cord, he lost control of the car and rolled over in a ditch, subsequently renamed Tom Mix Wash. A roadside monument, topped by a riderless horse, marks the spot. A rest area here has picnic tables.


Address: 17 miles south of Florence on AZ 79, between Mileposts 115 and 116.
