ABOUT THE RIM COUNTRY MUSEUM:

 

The Rim Country Museum complex consists of the oldest Forest Ranger Station and residence still standing in the Southwest. The Ranger Station is the original from 1907.  The ranger home, now our gift shop and office, was rebuilt on the same foundation in 1933-37.

 

The exhibit hall is a replica of the two story 'Herron Hotel' known as the 'Hilton of Payson' in the early 1900's. 


Additionally we have a circa 1900 Haught cabin that was painstakingly moved to our grounds. Also on the grounds is the top portion of the Forest Service fire lookout tower that was originally located on Mt. Ord.
