Description
Known by such names as Green Valley, Long Valley, Big Valley and Union City, Payson was first settled by prospectors who came to the area seeking wealth. Payson's mines produced little, and cattle and lumber soon became the community's livelihood. With the help of Senator Payson of Chicago, the early residents helped establish a post office and named it and the town in his honor.
Surrounded by the lakes and dense woodlands of Tonto National Forest and the nearby Mogollon Rim, Payson has become a convenient getaway for visitors, with Phoenix only 90 minutes away.
