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

Canoa, AZ


Pima Co.

"Crossing the Santa Cruz, we passed the Canoa, a stockade house used as an inn.  A place destined to see in the following year, an awful massacre.  Fourteen miles more brought us to the old Spanish military post of Tubac."  Pumpelly, 1860.

Shows as a settlement on all maps.  East side Santa Cruz river, about 25 miles above Calabasas, on Canoa Land Grant.  q.v.
