The Babocomari Village Site on the Babocomari River, Southeastern Arizona

Author(s): Charles C. Dipeso

Year: 1951


During the course of the last two years (1948-1949), The Amerind Foundation, Inc., of Dragoon, Arizona, conducted archaeological excavations in Southeastern Arizona in Cochise County, at a pre-historic site known as the Babocomari Village.

The village lies on private land, and a lease to excavate was negotiated with Mr. Robert Mitchell of Fry, Arizona. During the digging period, the property changed hands and a new lease was negotiated with Mr. John Williams.

The Babocomari River, from which the valley derives its name, rises in the Babocomari Land Grant on the easCanelo hills. The river flows northeast, entering the San Pedro River at Fairbank, in Township 20 South, Range 21 East. Approximately twelve miles west by southwest of the village of Fairbank, on the south bank of the Babocomari River, lies the village site ARIZONA:EE:7:l. It nestles against the northern foothills of the Huachuca Mountain Range at an elevation of 4,429 feet above sea level.
