The City of Tucson, Arizona has its roots long ago in the distant past, when the first humans to settle on its land arrived sometime around 10,000 BC. By 200 AD, the Hohokam culture rose to prominence, followed by the Pima and Tohono O’odham, until the arrival of the Coronado Expedition in about 1540, when Spanish settlers found the land in their search for the Seven Cities of Gold.
Throughout the 1700s, missions were built in the area and the city gradually became more and more populated—until Hugo O’Conor established the Tucson Presido in 1775, marking that year as the birthdate of the City of Tucson. However, Tucson was a part of Mexico until 1854, when the U.S. purchased the territory during the Gadsden Purchase. 1912 saw Arizona become a state of the Union, and today Tucson is the 33rd largest city in the modern United States.
There’s plenty to do in the City of Tucson, where the breathtaking beauty of the Arizona desert provides a hot, scenic backdrop to the active and energetic nature of the city. The city offers a number of museums and galleries for you to experience the cultural and historical flavor of the region up close, while you can also explore distant space at the Fred Lawrence Whipple and Kitt Peak National Observatories. You can even witness history firsthand in the Mission San Xavier del Bac or the Pima Air & Space Museum.
