Cornville, AZ | Cornville, Arizona

       Originally, the intention of early settlers in the Cornville area intended to name the area Cohnville. But somewhere along the line, signals were crossed and the View of the Sunset over Cottonwood from Cornville Rd.area became known as Cornville on paperwork from the post office, which was established in 1887. 
     Don’t laugh too much … there is a town in Alaska that settlers wanted to name Ptarmigan, after a common local game bird, but no one knew how to spell it….The town wound up with the name Chicken instead. If you ask me, the name Cornville ain’t so bad, considering!
     Because of the large expanses of rich soils from ancient flood plains of Oak Creek and the Verde River, Cornville has historically been an area of farming and ranching. That tradition is still very much alive in Cornville today.
     In the past decade or so, agricultural activities in the area got a substantial infusion of culture and class when several wineries began operations in the Page Springs area. Most are open daily for wine tasting and offer wines for sale.   Cornville is now being referred to as “Wine Country,” which is a far cry from Cornville’s older claim to fame. Locals have often commented over the years that Cornville was where the toothbrush was invented– had it been invented anywhere else, it would have been called the “teethbrush!”Cornville pays homage to locals and longtime residents.
     Cornville is where my husband and I live and we love the rich diversity of people who reside in the Cornville area. Here you can sample local wines,...or the local mash from a secret still or two that still operate in the area!
