The City of Sierra Vista is nestled near the Huachuca Mountains in southeastern Arizona. It benefits from the mountain watershed, nearby natural springs, and the San Pedro River to the east, which all provide water to the community. The area’s access to water was critical to the establishment of Fort Huachuca in 1877. Founded originally to serve the fort, Sierra Vista grew as residents established mercantile shops, saloons, and hotels. Sierra Vista is now the largest city in Cochise County. Join us as we celebrate the opening of Water/Ways at the City of Sierra Vista’s Henry F. Hauser Museum this Saturday, January 12! Water/Ways and Sierra Vista’s local exhibit Changing Landscapes will run through February 25, 2019.
