A profile page for the County with some history.

In the area of Coconino County during the mid 1800's, several military expeditions came through to search it out. During the 1870's, Mormon settlers came from the north. They first settled at Lee's Ferry which was actually a rest stop for their trips to their settlements in Navajo and Apache Counties. Flagstaff was designated the permanent County Seat in 1891. It had been the temporary seat until the election. Williams had campaigned for the designation, but Flagstaff won out. The original courthouse is still in use at this time (1998)
