Tucson is a city rich in history, dating back nearly 12,000 years to the Paleo-Indians, who settled near the Santa Cruz River. During AD 600 to 1450, the Hohokam, known for red-on-brown pottery, lived in the area and developed a vast canal system to irrigate crops.
In 1853 Tucson would no longer be part of Mexico and officially became part of the United States. In the late 1800s, silver and copper mining attracted many people to chase the American dream west to Tucson. During this era, the Tucson region was a lawless, dangerous place to live, with shootings and stage coach robberies regularly occurring. The University of Arizona was founded in 1885 as a land-grant college, and was constructed on an over-grazed piece of land between Fort Lowell and Tucson.
Between 1900 and 1910, Tucson’s population grew by over 6,000 residents. Two years later, Arizona earned Statehood. Around the same time, a state of the art Veterans Hospital was constructed to help treat the thousands of young men who suffered gas attacks in World War I. By 1920 the population grew to over 20,000 and then to more than 36,000 in 1940. Today there are over half a million residents in the Tucson area, the second largest populated city in Arizona.
Tucson has a total land area of 195.1 square miles (505 km2) and its elevation is 2,643 ft (728 m). The city is situated in the Sonoran Desert on what’s known as an alluvial plain, a flat landform. Five mountain ranges surround the city, including the Santa Rita Mountains, Rincon Mountains, Santa Catalina Mountains, Tortolita Mountains, and Tucson Mountains.
