The Rim Country Museum in Payson, AZ, USA, is a non-profit corporation that manages the Rim Country Museum and Zane Grey Cabin. We are a small history museum in a small town funded by admissions, gift shop sales, and donations. Our web site is rimcountrymuseum.org. The Rim Country Museum preserves, collects, protects, and display items related to the history of the area within a 50-mile radius surrounding Payson. We are the only museum in the area and we attract visitors from around the world. A large number of our visitors are seniors/retirees with a higher level of education. The "Rim" refers to the Mogollon Rim, a 200-mile long escarpment that is the southern edge of the Colorado Plateau. The edge runs from northwestern Arizona 200 miles to the southeast to the New Mexico border. The Rim is at an altitude of 6500-7000 feet. Payson is at 5000 feet. The Rim dominates our geography, geology, and weather. Views of the Rim dominate the scenery in the area and the Rim attracts tourists to the area to hunt, fish, hike, ride and enjoy the outdoors. The museum's slogan is "The Best Stories in the West." We have displays on prehistoric people, local Tonto Apache, the rodeo, Zane Grey, pioneer women, blacksmith, moonshine and a major forest fire in the area known as the Dude Fire. We also focus on the three main reasons settlers came to this area: Farming/ranching, lumber,, and mining.
