Book tells story of Cornville name choice

Cottonwood News

People have been asking how Cornville got its name for about as long as the town has existed. Now there is an answer — maybe.

Judith Miller holds a copy of her work, “History of the Cornville Post Office,” on Thursday, March 8. The 44-page report investigates the origin of the name Cornville, as well as the history of Cornville’s post offices and postmasters.It took over two years, a trip to Washington, D.C., and a 44-page document to tell the story, but Judith Miller, a Cornville Historical Society board member, published the most definitive account to date of how Cornville got its name.

Miller’s research is found in her “History of the Cornville Post Office,” recently published by the Cornville Historical Society.

It also contains a detailed account of the history of Cornville’s post offices and postmasters through the years.

For the full story, pick up a copy of the Wednesday, March 14, edition of The Camp Verde Journal or the Cottonwood Journal Extra.
