10. Rim Country Museum (Payson, Arizona)
Visitation has more than doubled since the replica Zane Grey cabin (the original burned down in a 1990 forest fire) was dedicated in 2005. Don’t think, however, that this museum is just about a famous Western novelist. Displays tell the stories of the area’s Indians and rodeo cowboys, lumberjacks and miners, moonshiners and firefighters. Special events in 2009 ranged from a Civil War re-enactment to parades and, of course, the dedication of the Gib Stiles Collection of 294 items, featuring several Zane Grey first editions, as a permanent exhibit in the cabin.
