Holbrook Details

In 1881, Holbrook, Arizona, was a frontier town and to this day still is a frontier town. The only difference is that the theme has changed a bit. Back in the 1880’s, the men on the frontier were railroaders, cowboys and cattle ranchers who all worked to make Holbrook the heart of ranch country. The courthouse from 1898 is the centerpiece of town and currently listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In the 1930’s and on through to the 1950’s, the frontiersmen traveled Route 66, which was often called “The Main Street of America” or “The Mother Road”.Nowadays, Holbrook is a frontier for explorers of the modern age. The breathtaking beauty of the Indian country calls to travelers, who often pull to the side of the interstate and step into a place of value that inspires you to alter your perspective on life. Holbrook is a great place to explore the Apache, Hopi and Navajo countries. The Petrified Forest National Park eighteen miles to the east is of the world biggest and most colorful collections of petrified wood. Here you will find the Painted Desert as well as archeological sites featuring fossils that are older than two hundred million years.
