Huachuca City is a town in Cochise County, Arizona, United States. As of the 2010 census, the population was 1,853.
Fort Huachuca, a U.S. Army base, is located just south of the municipality.
Huachuca City started out as a stop along the Southern Pacific Railroad. The rail stretched between Tombstone and Patagonia and is no longer in operation today. With the re-opening of Fort Huachuca in 1954, the area began to grow and while it went through many name changes – Campstone Station, Sunset City, and Huachuca Vista – it finally settled on the name Huachuca City and incorporated in 1958.
Today, Huachuca City is a small town located at the north exit of Fort Huachuca, the major employment for the town. With retirees moving in and tourism a major business because of the proximity to Tombstone and Kartchner Caverns State Park, Huachuca City is a growing area.
