Arizona History

Tucson's rich heritage includes a mixture of Spanish, Indian, Hispanic, and Anglo cultural influences. The name "Tucson" is derived from the Indian word, "Chuk-son," meaning village of the dark spring at the foot of the mountains. This Arizona city was etablished in 1775 by Spanish soldiers as a walled presidio - the Presidio of San Augustin de Tucson. Tucson became a part of the United States as part of the Gadsden Purchase. Following a turbulent territorial period racked by conflict with the Apache Indians, Arizona became the 48th state in 1912. Today, Today Tucson is one of the fastest growing urban areas in the United States. More
