The Big Tin Cotton Gin (originally known as the Magma Cotton Gin). A fully operational Gin up until the time it was purchased by the current owners. Their family used to farm in the area and grew up in and around this Gin - when it was offered for sale they jumped at the chance to keep a piece of local history alive. In January 2019 Julie Ballentyne and Mary Kyle took the Gin over and has continued to have the Vintage and Craft Market along with having Weddings/Receptions, Baby Showers, Bridal Showers, Graduation Parties, Corporate Meetings/Parties and lots more. They have done some remodeling and some restoring. It has turned out to be a very Beautiful place and a great location.
It is one of the few cotton gins left standing in Arizona. The Big Tin Cotton Gin is truly a one of a kind venue.
