Coconino County

Coconino County is a fun and diverse area of Arizona with plenty of attractions, both natural and man-made. The most famous attraction by far is the Grand Canyon National Park. Flagstaff, in particular, is lauded for being a great place to live and to work. In Flagstaff alone, spectacles include Lowell Observatory, the research institution where Pluto was discovered; the Arboretum, the home of hundreds of plants in the Coconino National Forest; and the Flagstaff Urban Trails System, the system of pathways that spread throughout the city.

In 1891, Coconino County was created out of Yavapai County. It had a mere population of 4,000 at that point, and its major industries were logging and cattle ranching. Coconino County continues to expand and grow as the years go on, and it should only continue to do so.
