Tucson was the first city to earn the designation of World City of Gastronomy by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). It is the second largest city in Arizona, and is home to the University of Arizona. Plus, with a thriving visual and performing arts scene, music and food. Tucson was incorporated in 1877, making it the oldest incorporated city in Arizona.
Tucson’s dry, sunny climate and unique desert locale have made it a popular tourist and health resort and retirement community. The city’s postwar industries have centered on aircraft and missile manufacturing and electronics research and manufacture.
In 1692 the Jesuit missionary Eusebio Kino first visited the Tohono O’odham and Pima Indians at Stjukshon, or Chuk Shon (Tucson; meaning “village of the spring at the foot of the black mountain”), and in 1700 he established several missions in the area, including Mission San Xavier del Bac, 15 miles (25 km) from the modern city. On August 20, 1775, the small walled pueblo of Tucson was made a presidio (fort) of the Spanish army, and when Spanish rule was superseded by that of Mexico, the walled town remained the military headquarters of the province. The “Old Pueblo” has lived under four flags (Spanish, Mexican, Confederate, and U.S.).
Tucson lay in the territory that was acquired from Mexico by the United States in the Gadsden Purchase (1854), and the town served as the territorial capital of Arizona from 1867 to 1877. Its growth was further stimulated by the arrival of the Southern Pacific Railroad (1880), the discovery of silver at nearby Tombstone and copper at Bisbee, and irrigation developments. Since World War II the city has experienced remarkable growth, partly due to the annexation of suburbs.
