A Mormon Settlement started here in about 1888. Pinetop was first called Penrod after David Penrod, a local settler, in an area at the edge-most part of Fort Apache. The Penrods built and ran a saw mill here as early as 1891. The Post Office was established December 9, 1891, called Penrod. Although clearly an area of tall pines, how Pinetop got its name is a little murky. One of the stories is that a bachelor named Johnny Phipps ran a saloon to which black soldiers from Fort Apache would travel to; later, when Phipps died, a gentleman named Walt Rigney took over the saloon, and soldiers began calling the area "Pinetop", their nickname for Rigney. It is reported that Mr. Rigney's hair stood up in spiky tufts... However, the location is in tall pines near the top of the Mogollon Rim.
William L. Penrod and his family moved near Show Low in 1878, having arrived from Utah and settled in Phipps' house. The Post Office Dept. abandoned the name Penrod and accepted the name Pinetop. Until 1906 the residents were thirteen Penrod children. Post Office established as Pinetop, Jan 31, 1895.
