Pinetop-Lakeside Historical Society and Museum is nestled in Arizona’s White Mountain region in the world’s largest contiguous ponderosa pine tree forest. Early settlers arriving in the late 1800s discovered a land rich in natural resources, and logging and sawmilling soon became main industries. Early pioneers established sawmills, namely, the Fish and Webb families. The largest sawmill–the William Cady Lumber Co, originally from Louisiana–was moved to McNary. This museum explores the area’s timber history and has many other important displays depicting the richness of Pinetop and Lakeside.
