DescriptionSince Bulletin 187 was printed a dozen years ago, several new studies on the geologic framework and mineral resources of Cochise County have been released. Because the bulletin was reprinted without modification, it is appropriate to call to your attention some of these new publications. - The New Mexico Geological Society, in cooperation with the Arizona Geological Society, held its 29th field conference in Cochise County, November 9-11, 1978. Road logs and technical papers on various aspects of the geologic framework and associated mineral resources are included in the guidebook, which was published by and can be purchased from the New Mexico Geological Society, Inc. A geologic map (scale 1:125,000) of most of Cochise County and adjoining Pima County, prepared by Harald Drewes, was published by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in 1980. Robert B. Scarborough and Michel L. Coney prepared an index of published geologic maps of Arizona, which was printed by the Arizona Bureau of Geology and Mineral Technology in 1982.

Binghampton Rural Historic District, a study of an urban neighborhood's attempt to gain historic district statusZube, Ervin H.; Mann, Christine Toler, 1946- (The University of Arizona., 1991)The River Bend neighborhood should be preserved as Binghampton Rural Historic District because it is a vestige of the Mormon colony of Binghampton and because it preserves part of the farming history of the Tucson basin. It reflects the pattern of both Mormon agrarian colonization and western settlement. Reminders of the original Mormon farmers exist in the form of fence lines, tree lined roads, orchards, and irrigation ditches. Unpaved, straight streets are aligned with the cardinal directions. The clustering of buildings in a comparatively large open space is characteristic of the spatial arrangement of rural Mormon landscapes. A survey of residents indicates a majority support the petition to become a historic district, but rezoning is a political process which will require the neighborhood to use a multi-faceted approach to achieve protection.
