Cave Creek is a town in Maricopa County bordered by Carefree. In the 1870s members of the Calvary explored the area, and an adobe home was built along a creek close to where the Cavalry had rested, and soon the Cave Creek Station for travelers was established. This lead eventually to the town of Cave Creek. The Carefree/Cave Creek Chamber of Commerce serves both towns. However, the towns have different histories. Cave Creek was established before Arizona became a state. Carefree was established after Arizona was made a state.
