Snowflake, Arizona. A place where it is socially acceptable to be snowflake crazy all year long!
Snowflake was not named for the weather. The community, originally known as Silver Creek, was founded in 1878 by Erastus Snow and William Jordan Flake. Some of the residents wanted to name the town after Mr. Snow, and others wanted to name it after Mr. Flake. Even though the desert town's name was not the result of a bad winter, the town of Snowflake is surrounded by the White Mountains. Coincidence?
