Incorporated in 1994, Sahuarita is the fifth youngest town in the State, but people have lived here for as many as 12,000 years. This land is blessed with a rich cultural history and legacy established by the ancestors of Native American groups who still live here.
the Town of Sahuarita has grown from 1,900 in 1994 to nearly 30,000 residents. We are known for the FICO pecan orchards along Nogales Highway. We are the gateway to the sycamore and cottonwood canyons of Madera and Gardner. The ponderosa pine-forested peaks of the Santa Rita Mountains form our eastern horizon.
Sahuarita is also home to the Titan Missile Museum, which curates Cold War relics. The ASARCO Mineral Discovery Center offers tours for visitors to learn about copper mining. Just south of Sahuarita, on top of Mount Hopkins, is the Whipple Observatory, a telescope facility operated by Harvard that offers tours to the public. Mount Wrightson is the tallest peak in the region at 9,456 feet, and is a destination for outdoor enthusiasts seeking wild adventure and a tough hike.
With a median age of 34, and many retirees, our residents are active and enjoy abundant outdoor opportunities. We are so beautifully co...nnected with Tucson, only 20 minutes from Sahuarita, and our neighbors to the south in Sonora, Mexico.
The Town of Sahuarita Human Resources Department provides quality support services to all town departments in the area of personnel, employee training and development to assist in providing services to the public.
