The town of Naco, Sonora was established in 1901
after originally having been settled by Nahua and Opata Indians. The name comes from the Opata
language. Naco is famous for the Battle of Naco which took
place in 1915 between two factions of the Mexican army. US
cavalry from Ft Huachuca stood guard along the border to insure the conflict
remained in Mexico and did not spill over into the US. In spite of
this, several members of the US 9th and 10 Cavalry regiments did become
casualties as a result of the fighting in Mexico.
Naco is a small but popular shopping area for
southern Arizona residents. Many take advantage of it's proximity and ease
of access to obtain prescription medications, food and beverages, as well as
high quality but relatively low cost dental care. The principal economic activity in the area is
manufacturing with several maquilladora firms operating in Naco. Agriculture
is also important with large cattle ranching operations in the area.
