AUTHOR VAL WILSON
Val Wilson was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, and just never left! The sunsets and southwestern flavor of the territory have always been a place she calls home. Her love for old houses blossomed when she started exploring the many rustic ghost towns of Arizona in high school. The structures and homes left behind by former pioneers, miners, and ranchers ignited a passion to preserve such places so their story, and the people who lived there, live on in our histories.
Val has a Masters in Elementary Education, and is a teacher of the gifted. In her spare time, she is the chairman of her town’s art commission, a committee dedicated to the revitalization and preservation of the structures and community systems within the town boundaries. Her town is a former 1955 retirement community, which fuels her love for mid-century recipes that she displays on her blog Mid-Century Chef.
She is also treasurer of the Pioneers’ Cemetery Association (PCA), which researches, investigates, and preserves artifacts, documents, and pioneer cemeteries of territorial Phoenix. She is often found at their headquarters, historic Smurthwaite, which is a 1897 shingle style house built by one of Phoenix’s pioneers, James Creighton. It is also one of the few remaining nineteenth century buildings in Phoenix.
