Pine and Strawberry are a treasure trove of history

If you travel up Highway 87 to Pine and Strawberry, you’ll discover a treasure trove of history hidden in the Arizona mountains. You may have to pinch yourself to make sure you’re still in the 20th century. In the August 1981 Arizona Highways magazine, Bill Ahrendt wrote of Pine,“No great swaths of neon and noise, no denuded ruin of once virgin forest, no great holes or marred landscape interrupt the sublime timeless feeling of this place. It is an ageless portrait of village life, forever lost to most of America.”
