Huachuca City is a town in Cochise County, Arizona, United States. According to 2006 Census Bureau estimates, the population of the town is 1,890.
Huachuca City started out as a rail stop, along the Southern Pacific Railroad. The rail stretched between Tombstone and Patagonia and is no longer in operation today. With the 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 Fort is the major employment for the town, however with retirees moving in and tourism starting to become a major business, because of the close proximity to Tombstone and Kartchner Caverns State Park, Huachuca City is a growing area.
Fort Huachuca, a U.S. Army base, is located just south of the municipality.
The median income for a household in the town was $26,311, and the median income for a family was $33,938. Males had a median income of $26,685 versus $20,179 for females. The per capita income for the town was $14,378.
