History of Marana

Marana is a town in Pima County and a small part of Pinal County, Arizona. Before Spanish colonists inhabited the area in the 1600s and 1700s, archaeological records showed continuous human settlements within the vicinity for around 4,200 years. As Spanish settlers came to the area and intermarried with the Native Americans, a class of mestizo settlers was developed. The area was part of the 1821 Mexican Empire and developed through mining and ranching. In 1854, the territory was acquired by the U.S. in the Gadsden Purchase at the end of the Mexican-American War.

It is said the first person to settle in the Tucson area was Charles B. Anway, who decided to relocate there because he had thought the fry mountain air would be beneficial for his tuberculosis. His brother William moved his family to Postvale, AZ, just northwest of Tucson in 1919. In 1920, William's widowed wife married Orpha Ralston. With the help of the Postvale Co-operative Women's Club, she lobbied for the renaming of the local post office to Marana.

After World War I, the town developed as an agricultural center, producing commodity crops of alfalfa, barley, cotton, pecan and wheat. During World War II, the Army established the Marana Airfield as a pilot training center. Training more than 10,000 flyers, it was the largest pilot-training center worldwide.

In March 1977, the Town of Marana was incorporated. As of 2010, it has a total area of 120.7 square miles and a population of 34,961 people.
