HOW SHOW LOW GOT ITS NAME ...

A card game between two ranchers reveals that Show Low got its name from a lucky draw. Fiberglass original caught fire during a candlelight vigil in Nov. 2016 and was destroyed. Bronze replacement unveiled July 25, 2017.

According to the plaque at the statue of two cowboys playing cards, Show Low got its name when two ranchers felt that life in the territory was getting a little too crowded (On a clear day, you might be able to see smoke from your neighbor's cabin). The men, Marion Clark and Corydon Cooley, decided to settle their differences with a card game named Seven Up. Whoever drew the low card won. At one point Clark is thought to have said, "show low," and Cooley turned up the two of clubs.

Cooley won, Clark moved further down the road, and the main street in Show Low is now named Deuce of Clubs.
