Hackberry, Arizona Territory (1879)

Brief History

Hackberry origin dates back to 1864 when prospectors set up a mining camp on the east side of the Peacock Mountains. After having discovered rich deposits of silver, the Hackberry Silver Mine was soon established and named for a large Hackberry tree growing near a spring adjacent to the mine. Before long, the valuable ore warranted a five stamp mill, which quickly doubled its capacity. Reportedly, this rich vein is about 400 feet in width, amounting in large amounts of silver being taken from the mine.

When the railroad came through in 1872, the small settlement moved some four miles from the original site. The “new” town of Hackberry became an important loading point for large cattle shipments, soon ranking third in the state for volume shipped.
