If you are new to Arizona Place Names you may want to take a moment to read the About Page to get an idea of what this blog is about and what I am trying to accomplish. Thanks, Peggy

Calva, AZ


Graham Co.

GLO Map, 1921

San Carlos Ind. Res., Station on Arizona-Eastern R. R. about 15 miles east of San Carlos.  Will be covered by waters of San Carlos reservoir.  Road has been rebuilt on a higher grade above flow line.

"Station first called Dewey but was washed out by a big flood.  When rebuilt name was changed to Calva, after a local Apache sub-chief, who lived here and had a small farm on the river. "  Letter, S. T. Arkills, Globe.
