Poston, know as the father of Arizona, came to Tubac in 1854 after the Gadsden Purchase and established the headquarters of a mining company, with mines near Arivaca and in the Santa Rita Mountains. Mining activities were discontinued during the Civil War because of increased Apache Indian attacks. Poston was instrumental in promoting Arizona and helping it achieve territorial status separate from New Mexico in 1863.
