Cochise County, located in the southeastern corner of Arizona, was established on February 1, 1881. It's named after the legendary Chiricahua Apache Chief Cochise, who led his people in their resistance against the U.S. military during the Apache Wars in the 1860s. Covering an area of 6,219 square miles, Cochise County is characterized by its stunning landscapes, including the Chiricahua Mountains, the Dragoon Mountains, and the Huachuca Mountains, as well as the San Pedro River Valley.

The history of Cochise County dates back thousands of years, with native peoples inhabiting the area long before the arrival of European settlers. The first European explorers came to the region in the 16th century, led by the Spanish who were in search of gold and silver. Throughout the centuries, the area was under Spanish, Mexican, and finally, United States control.

Cochise County was primarily a mining area during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, with the discovery of silver, gold, lead, and copper deposits leading to the establishment of several mining towns, such as Tombstone, Bisbee, and Willcox. The county also played a significant role during the American Old West era, with the famous gunfight at the O.K. Corral involving Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, and the Clanton & McLaury gang taking place in Tombstone in 1881.

In more recent times, Cochise County has developed into a hub for tourism, agriculture, and military endeavors, with Fort Huachuca being a notable military installation in the area.

Fun fact: Bisbee, one of the towns in Cochise County, was once the largest city between St. Louis and San Francisco in the early 20th century, thanks to its thriving mining industry. Today, Bisbee has transformed into a popular destination known for its historic architecture, art, and culture.
