The authentic replica of the Zane Grey Cabin is a tribute to "the father of the western novel" who penned more than 60 books and hundreds of short stories about the great American West. Zane Grey used regional history and local people as prototypes for his plots and characters, the majority of which were based in what he called his "beloved Arizona".
Visitors will experience the replicated cabin just as Grey did the original. A Morris chair with lap board recreates the setting where he handwrote millions of best selling words. Original letters and autographed books are casually placed. Rain gear and slickers hang from pegs on the rough paneled walls. Native American symbols are etched into the fireplace mantel.
