Boat and RV Storage
The name Punkin Center was originally given to the old Packard store in the early 1900’s. Almost from the beginning the Packard store started to become a meeting place for the residents of Tonto Basin. It wasn’t long before the people of Tonto Basin considered Packard store the center of the community. The school was moved near the store in 1925, and the post office established in 1929. Everything of community interest occurred at the store or school building, from dances to funerals. One such event was the annual pumpkin growing contest held each year. Tonto residents would use their competitive farming skills to see who could raise the biggest pumpkins. The Packard store served as the official weighing point, and before long became known as the Punkin Center Store & Saloon. Today Punkin Center is still known for its yearly pumpkin carving contests held every Halloween.
