Pima County was one of the four original counties created in 1864. It included most of southern Arizona. When gold was discovered in the mid-1700's, fortune hunting prospectors flooded the area. The rest of the 1700's saw more mining and ranching and also many more people. Tucson has been the county seat from the beginning and was the Arizona Territorial capital from 1867 to 1877. The University of Arizona is also located here.
