Special Order


In true Old West fashion, Corydon Cooley and Marion Clark decided ownership of their ranch in the White Mountains with a game of "seven-up." Cooley turned over the winning low card, and the name, Show Low, became history. Today the main street is the "Deuce of Clubs," and visitors learn the town was "Named by the Turn of a Card." Mormon settlers and Apaches, sawmills and logging, hunting and fishing, and rodeos and ranching all add to the history of this tiny community. When Highway 60 was completed through Salt River Canyon in the 1930s, adequate access from Phoenix and the nation was finally available. At an elevation of 6,500 feet, there is usually a slight wind moving through the ponderosa pines, and Show Low stands ready to welcome visitors.
