Re: Ox Bow Inn
We lived in Payson briefly from 1975 to 1978. I remember the Ox Bow Inn and Saloon. It was rodeo weekend and the saloon was jammed full of cowboys and other participants for the celebration.
But there was only warm beer. The cooler had failed in the afternoon heat. I worked for Rick Lassiter in television and appliance repair and we had the job of repairing the cooler. When a new compressor arrived by special delivery we had it up and running by nightfall to everyone's relief.
The swimming pool at Ox Bow Inn was also a haven for kids, I remember taking my son there for swimming lessons. We moved back to Michigan shortly after but we still miss Payson. We thank you for this online edition, and read it regularly.
