General Overview
New Spain of the 16th century covered an enormous area, extending east to West Indies, west to the Philippines, south to Venezuela and north to Taos, New Mexico. The region south of the Gila River, now southern Arizona, held little importance for Spain in 1539 when Fry Marcos de Niza crossed the present Arizona border at Lochiel in search of gold. Special Collections and Exhibits - Devoted to area history. - We are moving to the next millenium with more community owned participation in the society's endeavors to collect, preserve, interpret, and display the history and pre-history of this region.
