COMMUNITY OF HOLBROOK

 

Holbrook is on the banks of the Little Colorado River and along Interstate 40 in Northeastern Arizona's high plateau country. In 1881-82 railroad tracks were laid and a railroad station was built in the community. The community was then named Holbrook in honor of the first chief engineer of the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad. The railroad is now the BNSF and Holbrook has since been a transportation hub and service center for northeast Arizona. Holbrook is also on Historic Route 66 and is the gateway city to the Petrified Forest National Park. A colorful cowboy history also helps to make Holbrook an interesting tourist community. Holbrook is the county seat of Navajo County.
