Excerpt from Sketch of Pima County Arizona: Its Mining Districts, Minerals, Climate, Agriculture and Other Resources, Prepared at the Request of the Chamber of Commerce

Pima, the oldest of the thirteen counties of the Territory of Arizona, was established by the first Territorial Legislature in the year 1864.

It then extended east and west nearly the full length of the Gadsden Purchase, or from the Territory of New Mexico on the east to the Colorado River on the west. Since then, the area of the county has been reduced by the setting off of Cochise County on the east; a part of Yuma County on the west; a part of Final on the north and the county of Santa Cruz on the south. But even while so shorn of its initial vast extent it retains the ample area of 9,424 square miles, an area equal to that of the state of Massachusetts and Rhode Island combined.

Pima, including Santa Cruz, borders on the south upon the state of Sonora, Mexico, for nearly 200 miles. The greatest width, north and south, at the bordering county of Cochise is about 80 miles. The map of the county is nearly bisected by the parallel of 32 degrees.

Pima may be regarded as typical Arizona. It is the portion of the territory earliest occupied and most generally known. While the Pilgrim Fathers were settling Massachusetts Bay, the Fathers of the Church were traversing Pimeria Alta, as the region was then known, establishing Missions and preparing the way for civilization. The region was traversed in turn by the expeditions from Mexico in search of gold and turquoises; by the gold-seekers of 1848 and 1849, by the Overland Butterfield stages and lastly by the Southern Pacific railway, which stretches diagonally across the northeast corner of the county.
