Located in the heart of the beautiful Mogollon Rim country and surrounded by the Apache-Sitgreaves Forest. Heber was founded by Mormon settlers in 1883. The first settlers were farmers and ranchers until approximately 1926 when the first sawmill was built here. Considering the vast natural resource of timber in the surrounding area, the sawmill and logging business has been the mainstay of the Heber area for many years.

Most Popular Area Attractions

Heber UFO Phenomenon

The quaint Northern Arizona town of Heber, located at the edge of the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest, found overnight fame in 1975. Upon leaving the forest after a day's work of clearing shrub brush, Travis Walton and his co-workers reported seeing an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) in the sky. After Walton approached the UFO, he suddenly disappeared. This Heber UFO Phenomenon has intrigued many people throughout the years.

After being gone for five days, Walton reappeared west of Heber and made his way to the Exxon gas station, where he called his sister from the payphone. Many people speculate as to what really happened to Walton. In 1978, he published a book titled The Walton Experience documenting the events. The 1993 film Fire in the Sky was an adaptation of his book. Northern Arizona travelers curious about the 1975 events will find the friendly town of Heber ready for visitors.
