Marion Clark and Corydon E. Cooley owned 100,000 acres. They decided to play a game of cards; winner to take the ranch. The game lasted all night. When the last hand began, Cooley needed one point to win. Clark told Cooley "show low and the ranch is yours." Cooley turned the deuce of clubs. Cooley replied "Show Low it is." The main street is named the Deuce of Clubs in remembrance.
