Sponsors Help Make Good Show Great



Today’s Sawmill Crossing shopping center, at the southwest corner of Main Street and Beeline Highway in Payson, was actually the site of the town’s biggest employer — Owens Bros. Lumber — from the early 1950s. In addition to operating a mill for the Rim’s important lumber industry, the family had a store and a gas station for the community’s vehicles, and those of visitors, who were able to make their way to Payson with relative ease when the Beeline Highway was first “finished” in the late 1950s.
