About This City

We are located in the El Gheko Neighborhood of Tucson, AZ , a city with about 600,000 residents (2014 Est.). The Tucson metro area has approximately 1,000,000 (2014 Est.) residents. For a history of the city of Tucson, click HERE. Briefly the history of Tucson is that the flags of four nations have flown over Tucson over the course of the last 500 hundred years. At various times the flags of Spain, Mexico, The United States, and the Confederacy have flown over the city.

Today, Tucson is the 32nd largest city and 52nd largest metropolitan area in the U.S. It is the largest city in southern Arizona and the second largest in the state, behind first-ranked Phoenix, the 5th largest U.S. City.

The city's humble beginnings began some 12,000 years ago with the migrating Paleo-Indians, a race of archaic hunters and gatherers. These early inhabitants included the Clovis people whose stone tools and arrowheads have been found at a mommoth-kill site in southeastern Arizona. More recent archaelogical remains of agricultural settlements dating from 1000 B.C. have been found along the Santa Cruz River. This and other evidence suggests that the area may have been continually inhabited since those ancent times, which would make Tucson one of oldest continually inhabited cities in the United States. Some say it is the oldest!

The El Gheko Neighborhood Association is located between East Broadway Blvd on the South, East Speedway Blvd on the North, Kolb Road on the East and the Rose Hill Wash on the West including Mann Avenue between Broadway and Speedway.
