Quartzite historical Tyson Wells Museum

The drive between Phoenix and Los Angeles can get pretty dull so next time you go, stop in Quartzite for a taste of history. Tyson Wells Stagecoach stop was busy in 1870. Then it converted to Oasis Hotel Site until 1924. Not sure how they survived the summers but the museum shows you what the pioneers would have experienced. Of course, there are tales of Hi Jolly, the army camel driver. Next door to the museum is Sillie Al's Pizza. Filled with artifacts (even an old water bottle) and newspaper headlines, it will keep you entertained and the pizza is quite good.
