THE WHITE MOUNTAINS
Show Low was named by the turn of card. Two early settlers, Corydon Cooley and Marion Clark, decided there wasn’t enough room for both of them in the community and agreed to let a game of cards decide who was to get the 100,000 acre ranch and who was to move on. The card game went on through the night and according to the story, Clark said to Cooley, “If you can show low, you win.” Cooley turned up the deuce of clubs and replied, “show low it is.” Show Low got its name from that card game and Show Low’s main street is named “Deuce of Clubs” in remembrance.
