Winslow Real Estate & Community Information

Located in Navajo County in Arizona, the city of Winslow is home to some 9600 residents.  It lies along the original Route 66, and was made even more famous when the Eagles sang about it in the song “Take It Easy” with the verse “standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona." The song renewed interest in Winslow, as the city had suffered a loss of revenue due to being bypassed by Interstate 40.

Just 18 mile west of Winslow is the Barringer Crater, known simply as “Meteor Crater” due to being near the post office of the same name. The crater is .737 miles in diameter and 560 ft deep. It was formed about 50,000 years ago when the area was cooler and more damp.  The meteorite that produced the crater was 160 feet across. The crater was discovered in modern days in the 19th century by settlers who originally called it Canyon Diablo crater.
