How did Show Low get its name?
Legend says that Marion Clark and Corydon E. Cooley were joint owners of a 100,000-acre ranch in 1875. Sometime later, they decided the place wasn't big enough for the both of them. To settle who moved, they played a card game called Seven Up. The partners played all night and on the last hand, Cooley needed just one point to win.
turned his cards over and said, "If you can show low, you win." Cooley cut the deck, drew an unbeatable two of clubs and retorted, "Show low it is." And that, as legend has it, was how the town was named. This legendary card game was also instrumental in naming three main roads in Show Low: Clark, Cooley, and Deuce of Clubs.
