—Jamestown Settlement —


Spanish Jesuits organized missions in the area after 1700, but Spain did not establish settlements until 1775-76 with the founding of Tucson. When Mexico won its independence from Spain in 1821, the area was controlled by Mexico. Most of the area was annexed by the United States at the end of the Mexican War in 1848, and the southern portion of the territory was added by the Gadsden Purchase of 1853, forming the New Mexico Territory. The state was formed from the Arizona Territory, organized in 1863.

1539-Explored by Marcos de Niza and Francisco Vasques de Coronado for Spain 1700s-Permanently settled by Spanish missionaries 1912-Admitted to the Union as the 48th state.
