The residents of the city are very proud of their beginnings based on a poker game. The two men felt there was not enough room in the settlement for both of them so they decided to play a game to determine who could stay. Clark was recorded as having said “if you can show low you win.” Cooley then showed the deuce of clubs as the lowest possible card in a deck. Cooley stated “show low it is,” and thus the name of the town. In honor of the game, when you drive from Show Low vacation rentals into town, you will be driving on the “Deuce of Clubs."
