Serving Our Community for Generations

“For generations in Round Valley, our family has been purveyors of the unique & practical.”

Our family’s history of serving the Round Valley community goes back to the late 19th century. There are pictures of the 1876 Becker Cabin replica inside of our store and a picture of the Becker Store circa 1895 with the notation: “For generations in Round Valley, our family has been purveyors of the unique & practical.”

In the book, “The White Mountains of Apache County,” the same picture of Fred’s great-grandfather’s store is there with the following information:

“The Becker brothers’ farming and mercantile business grew. About 1880, they purchased the store shown above and made improvements throughout the years. Gustav Becker’s sons contributed greatly to the community: Julius operated the store and promoted good roads, Paul ran Valley National Bank, Alvin developed Round Valley Light and Power, and my grandfather (Edward Becker) ran the Becker Motor Co. and Standard Oil distribution business.

Fred’s great-grandfather and great-uncle were recognized for their efforts to establish well-paved roads. A towering mesa in Salt River Canyon was named Becker Butte, and an overlook was created for sightseers. The dedication plaque called Gus Becker, ‘A Father of U.S. Highway 60,’ and states of Gus and Julius, ‘They made our world a better place in which to live.’”
