The Holbrook and Springerville Stage line
Arizona Biographies





TRAVELERS in Northern Arizona no longer dread the trip to St. Johns, as the Holbrook and Springerville Stage line, on which three Stanley Steamers are used, is now rated as one of the best in the Southwest, and the ride is considered a pleasure. The automobiles leave Holbrook daily, making the trip one way, each day, while an extra car is kept in reserve at all times. The route is through Woodruff, Hunt, Concho and St. Johns to Springerville. The machines are in the hands of competent drivers, who are also mechanicians and the old fear of an accident loses its terror on the new line. Parks Brothers, who control the line, have spared no expense to make the service first class and throughout the state the reputation they have established by the manner in which they conduct the line is enviable. The automobile leaves the Holbrook Hotel every day at 9:30 a. m. and arrives in Springerville before supper time. The roads have been put into good condition and the trip, often taken by tourists as a recreation, is becoming more popular with continued success. The low rate, $13.00 for the round trip, makes the trip one of the cheapest of its kind in the state, and the lack of railroad connections to the county seat of Apache is but little missed at present.
