Cochise County is steeped in the rich history of the Old West and the Native American tribes who called this place home.
Named after the great Apache Chief Cochise, Cochise County is a vast and diverse area, with long stretches of open road between settlements. Here you will find high mountain forests, such as the Chiricahuas where Cochise, and later, Geronimo once hunted and sought protection for their people.
Cochise and his men were gradually driven into the Dragoon Mountains where he was eventually laid to rest. The exact location of his burial site is unknown. Today, however, that section of the Dragoon Mountains is known as Cochise's Stronghold.
Immerse yourself, not only in the beautiful nature, but also the vibrant history this area has to offer. Journeying through this land certainly takes you back in time.
