Holbrook, Arizona – Too Tough For Women or Churches

 

Greetings From Holbrook, Arizona

Holbrook, Arizona, the county seat of Navajo County, got its start as a railroad town. Primarily called home to cowboys, cattle ranchers, and railroaders, the settlement soon took on all the vices of a typical Wild West town, complete with a saloon called the Bucket of Blood. Law and order were non-existent, gambling was popular, and painted ladies far outnumbered “proper women.” Today it’s a popular stop on Route 66.  Let’s Go Adventure Holbrook Arizona.
