Historic Sites and Points of Interest in Navajo County

Navajo County is situated in northern Arizona bordering Utah. Holbrook is the county seat.

With an area of 9,959 square miles (25,795 kilometers), Navajo County is larger than Vermont, but it has a population density of only about eleven people per square mile (four people per square kilometer). Almost half of the county's 111,399 residents identify themselves as American Indian - primarily Hopi, Navajo and Apache.

The largest towns - Holbrook, Winslow, Show Low, Snowflake - all have populations shy of ten thousand souls. Holbrook and Winslow are situated on Old Route 66 and the former Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad.

The opening lines of the Eagles recording of "Take It Easy" made Winslow famous:

Well, I'm a standin' on a corner in Winslow, Arizona,
and such a fine sight to see
It's a girl, my Lord, in a flatbed Ford,
slowin' down to take a look at me....

Winslow is also home to La Posada Hotel and Gardens, a stunningly restored Harvey House where the Amtrak Southwest Chief still stops.
