Rent to Own Homes in Tucson, AZ

Did you know that the Hokokam Indians settled the area that would become Tucson some 4,000 years before Europeans ever arrived in the area? This means that the city, which has grown to be the second largest in the state of Arizona, is also one of the oldest inhabited sites in all of North American history. Officially made part of the state in 1854 and incorporated city in 1877, Tucson can thank Southern Pacific Railroad for bringing about the initial growth that allowed it to become the city it is today.
