Welcome to the Web site of the Strawberry Schoolhouse, the oldest standing schoolhouse in Arizona. Here you will find out a little bit more about us and our rich history. We hope you will enjoy our page of local attractions that will make your visit fun and educational. And we hope you will feel free to contact us whenever you like. We love it in our little neck of the woods and know you will too.



Strawberry, Arizona is located in North Central Arizona at the base of the Mogollon Rim. “The Strawberry Valley was so named because of the many wild strawberries that grew in the valley. A wild grass grew and protected the strawberries that were abundant.” ( Brief History of Payson, Arizona by Ina Murphy)

We believe Strawberry is as beautiful today as it was when our school opened over 120 years ago. Thank you for letting us share it with you. Enjoy your stay!
