Show Low, Arizona

Show Low's rich heritage has created a thriving town that has prospered due to it's many resources and attractions. Pioneered by Native Americans and Mormons who settled the land, people today come from all over the country to discover the secret that residents have always known ... Show Low is a great place to live, to own a business, to work and to enjoy the wonderful recreational opportunities.

With so many recreation opportunities in the nearby Mogollon Rim country and White Mountains, Show Low has become an important year-round resort. Attractions include excellent trout fishing, hiking, camping, horseback riding, golf, scenic drives, big-game hunting, and skiing. The town of 9,200 (more than double in summer) sits on the pine-forested Mogollon Rim at an elevation of about 6,400 feet.

Show Low received its name from a poker game played in 1876. Corydon Cooley, a noted Indian scout, and his partner, Marion Clark, established a 100,000-acre ranch here in 1870, but found the place wasn't big enough for both of them. Agreeing to settle their differences with a game of cards, they sat down at Cooley's kitchen table for a game of "seven up." The two played through the night until finally Clark said, "Show low and you win." Cooley pulled out an unbeatable deuce of clubs and took the ranch. Several years later, Mormons bought the property, and their church now occupies the gaming site. Show Low's main street took its name, Deuce of Clubs, from the winning card.
