Deadbroke Inn

By Noah Austin

YOUNG The tiny Tonto Basin town of Young, as it looks today, could have graced the cover of Arizona Highways more than a half-century ago, and its isolation — it's accessible only via the winding and sometimes rugged State Route 288 — makes this area a relatively undiscovered corner of the state. Robin and Karla Alborn, who built the Deadbroke Inn with the area's Old West heritage in mind, hope to change that. The inn comfortably sleeps as many as four and includes a full kitchen. The next-door replica of an 1890s saloon can be rented for larger parties or special events. And the Alborns, who came to Arizona from Iowa eight years ago, are happy to share stories about the area's past, which includes the bloody feud known today as the Pleasant Valley War. But Karla Alborn's comment about another Arizona town might start a feud of its own: "Young has more history than Tombstone, really. It's just that Hollywood made Tombstone famous."
