History[edit | edit source]

Franciscans began establishing Spanish missions in northeastern Arizona in 1629. The Jesuits established missions in southeast Pima in 1692. A chain of missions, known as the Pimería Alta, dotted the Arizona-Sonora frontier. Arizona became a part of Mexico in 1810, and became a U.S. territory in 1863.[1]
