  • Tucson Gem Show ArizonaExplore Tucson's history

  • Tucson, Arizona is one of the oldest settlements in the United States, ranking in age next after San Augustine, Florida, and Santa Fe, New Mexico. The Santa Catalina mountains has been experiencing a gold rush for hundreds of years.

    A new book on the "Treasures of the Santa Catalina Mountains" reveals the legends and hidden history of the Catalina Mountains, north of Tucson. Discover how the Spanish, Mexican and American settlers became prospectors and then miners over hundreds of years. Spanish history in Tucson can be traced back to 1649, when a military station was established by the Spaniards to protect the Mission of San Xavier. The area was occupied by Native Americans for over 10,000 years before. Read and download several accounts about Tucson's early pioneer days and Tucson history.

    Just below Mt. Lemmon's backside lies one of the great stories of the search for gold in the mountains, the lost city and the lost Iron Door mine.

    Today, a quick drive to the Catalinas reveals that hidden treasures still do exist. Explore the historical records that account for that thousands of pounds of gold in quartz that has been extracted from the Catalina mountains. Read about Arizona's Gold Rush.
