Cochise began in the 1880s as a stop for water and coal along the Southern Pacific Railroad. The Cochise Hotel (pictured) was then built in 1882 for people working the railroad. Today it is a registered historic landmark and was open and running recently until put up for sale. In 1899, ‘Big Nose Kate’, sidekick of gunfighter and gambler Doc Holliday lived here and worked the hotel. Cochise’s peak population was once 3000 due to mining in nearby areas. As of 2013, only about 50 people reside in Cochise.
