This article is presented by the clergy abuse lawyers of Winslow. Our legal team is excited to take you along with us in learning about the City of Winslow and what it has to offer.
Winslow is a city located in Navajo County, Arizona. It has been debated whether the city was named for Edward F. Winslow, former president of St. Louis and San Francisco Rail Road, or Tom Winslow, a local prospector. The main roads serving the area are Interstate 40 ( Purple Heart Trail and U.S. Route 66) and Arizona State Road 87 ( County Round 282 and Old Highway 66). Winslow is within proximity to the communities of Winslow West, Leupp, Joseph City, Holbrook, and Dilkon. As of the 2010 census, it has a population of 9,655 people and a total area of 12.3 square miles.
La Posada Hotel is a hotel-depot complex in Winslow. Designed by American architect and designer Mary Jane Colter, it was built in a collaboration between the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway and Fred Harvey. As one of their last hotel-depot complexes in the Southwestern U.S., La Posada Hotel and the depot is of the Mission Revival and Spanish Colonial architectural style.
In 1957, the hotel was closed and turned into offices. However, it was later left abandoned until 1997, when it was bought and restored by Allan Affeldt. Reopened as a historic hotel and restaurant complex, it features a historical garden, restaurant and "exhibition room." In 2009, the hotel restaurant, the Turquoise Room, was rated as one of the top three restaurants in the U.S. by Conde Naste. Tina Mion's paintings are also exhibited by the Tina Mion Museum in the hotel. Just east of the hotel, the Winslow Arts Trust (WAT) has converted the parking lot and field into a sculpture garden, potager garden and orchard.
As for the depot, it now serves as the Winslow Amtrak station. WAT also renovated the building to house the Route 66 Art Museum, which celebrates the historic U.S. Route 66 in the Arizona corridor and the culture of Winslow.
Standin' on the Corner Park was opened in 1999 to commemorate the Eagles' song "Take It Easy." Written by Jackson Browne and Glenn Frey, it includes the line "Well, I'm a-standin' on a corner in Winslow, Arizona, and such a fine sight to see." The verse goes on to say, "It's a girl, my Lord, in a flatbed Ford slowin' down to take a look at me." Thus, the public park features the following:
The development of the park was an initiative of the Standin' on the Corner Foundation to build tourism in the city. Donors' names can be seen on the brick wall of the building, with each brick having a story describing the donors' fondness for the city.
