Oro Valley is a suburban town located in the western foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains at the base of Pusch Ridge. Part of Pima County, Arizona, the area was inhabited by the Hohokam and Apache tribes before the arrival of the Spanish Conquistadors.
In the 1800s, American settlers began moving into the Arizona Territory after the Gadsden Purchase at the end of the Mexican-American War. However, the Apaches were not happy about the influx of people. So, after the American Civil War, many Tucson settlers had relocated north to settle Oro Valley. In 1869, Francisco Romero had established a ranch in present-day Catalina State Park. A German immigrant, George Pusch, also settled in the Oro Valley area by establishing a cattle ranch after 1874. Water was provided by a steam pump, thus popularizing the unique ranch to become known as the Steam Pump Ranch of the Cañada del Oro – a watershed channel in the valley of Tucson.
As more people settled in the area, ranching continued to flourish and federal homesteads were developed after surveys of land were completed. Between 1903 and the 1940s, some of the homesteaders include:
In the 1930s through the 1960s, wealthy ranchers like Joseph McAdams, Larence Rooney, John Procter, Lloyd and Betty Golder, and Walter McDonald bought thousands of acres of property from the original settlers who were selling out. They had vacationed in Tucson and became interested in living part-time in the desert.
After World War II, the population in the area experienced tremendous growth. The Oro Valley Country Club was oped in the early 1950s and signified the area as an affluent community. In 1974, Oro Valley was incorporated as a town. Its name was taken from the Oro Valley Country Club. Communities in the town were Oro Valley Country Club Estates, Shadow Mountain Estates, Linda Vista Citrus Tract, and Campo Bello Estates.
Today, Oro Valley has a total area of 31.9 square miles and a population of 41,011 people as of the 2010 census. Arizona Daily Star magazine dubs it the "Upscale Tech Mecca" of Southern Arizona because of the more than 10 high-tech firms in the town.
Pusch Ridge Wilderness Area is a wilderness area in the Coronado National Forest of the Santa Catalina Mountains. The 56,430-acre area was established in 1978 as an effort to protect and preserve the sensitive Desert Bighorn Sheep population on Pusch Ridge. It is governed by the U.S. Forest Service.
Pusch Ridge, consisting of three distinct peaks, is the most prominent feature in the Pusch Ridge Wilderness Area. Managed by the Coronado National Forest, it was named after pioneer George Pusch. The three peaks of the ridge are Table Mountain, Bighorn Mountain and Pusch Peak. To hike Pusch Ridge, the Pusch Ridge Trailhead can be accessed on East Linda Vista Boulevard in the town of Oro Valley.
Oro Valley Country Club was founded in 1959 as a private country club in Oro Valley. Designed by Robert Burce Harris, it features an 18-hole, par-72 golf course, a swimming pool, tennis courts, clubhouse and dining area. In 1987, the country club was the host of the very first Pacific-10 Women's Golf Championships. It has gone on to be the host of the 20th Pac-10 Conference Women Golf Championships in 2006 and the Southwest Section PGA Championship in 2008.
