Strawberry, AZ, site of the Oldest standing School house in Arizona

If you come to visit in Payson or Pine, consider a side trip to the old school house in Strawberry. This is a restored, one room school house which is open to tour on weekends through mid October. The school was built in 1884 to service families in the area.

Strawberry is a small town about 20 miles North of Payson, on Hwy 87. It is nestled RIGHT below the Mogollan Rim. If you head North from Strawberry you begin to climb immediately until you are on top of the Rim. There are not a lot of businesses in Strawberry, but there are many houses and cabins scattered in the trees. Stop off for lunch at the Strawberry Lodge, they have great hamburgers.

Come and let your children see what it used to be like to go to school!

Here is a link to the web page about the school, complete with pictures.

I love visiting Strawberry....It is one of the sweetest towns anyone could see, there is an adorable cafe across from a field (looks like someones ranch) that has the most amazing country cooking. I wish you the best of luck and thanks for sharing that fact about Strawberry, that is one I did not know.

Thanks for stopping by, Dion. I live in Payson, but I just hated it that no one has posted ANYTHING about Pine and Strawberry.

Hi Leslie, Happy Friday!

I wrote a post this morning on ActiveRain about meeting ActiveRain neighbors...Say Hey to An ActiveRain Neighbor Today!  So with that....Hey Howdy Hey.. as your photo was adjacent to mine on ActiveRain.

I have never made it to Arizona, hopefully someday.  Hope that you enjoy a great Labor Day weekend and maybe run across you again.

Leslie,

I have never heard of Strawberry, but that sounds like a really cool field trip for a school to take.  There are not that many original school houses around anymore.  Your photos of Payson are all beautiful...unfortunately where I am everything is dirt and not very pretty.  I think i will make the trip someday.
