|Greenlee County was created in 1909 and named for Mason (Masin) Greenlee who was an early settler in the Clifton area. It was Arizona's 14th county and formed from part of Graham County, who opposed the formation because Graham County would lose considerable revenue. Clifton has always been the county seat. Greenlee County covers over 1800 square miles. From the beautiful desert at the southern tip to the high alpine country at Hanagan Meadow at 8000+ feet, the drive up the Coronado Trail is spectacular. Allow 4 hours to properly appreciate. Do lots of stopping. Enjoy|
