The Kansas Settlement is an Arizona farming community with a rich history, steeped in financial dramas and teeming with interesting stories and characters. It is situated within the Sulphur Springs Valley… an almost legendary place of boom and bust, a land where fortunes can quickly be made but more quickly lost. It was (and is) the place of dreams, successes, and fond memories, but also the place of countless financial disasters and ruination for reasons somewhat perplexing, and somewhat veiled.
The Sulphur Springs Valley is in southeastern Arizona (Cochise County) and the "Kansas Settlement," a seemingly outdated description for an Arizona locale, is the given name for a large productive farming area in its center. The northern edge of the Kansas Settlement is about 10 miles south of the town of Willcox.
