George Wilbur was a sheep man in the early days of the industry in Arizona. He built these buildings sometime in the early 1880s. They were marked on a 1885 Forest Service map, thus the buildings are younger than 1885. No sheep in the pictures, but I will post more information about George Wilbur soon.

It came to my attention a few years ago that the sheep industry in Arizona was disappearing. I love history, traveling to new places and research. These have been combined in researching this history. I am an independent researcher and speaker and also part of AZ Speaks with the Arizona Humanities. I hold a BA in Anthropology, a MA and Ph.D. in geography. My masters was in land use geography and the Ph.D. was more in historical geography. I love to travel and have visited all seven continents and more than 50 countries. I am a member of the Women Writing the West. View all posts by arizonasheephistory
