FREE Virtual Brown Bag Lecture with David Santor: City of Sierra Vista History Pre-1954

April 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


The history of the City of Sierra Vista is really the story of two completely different communities. Fort Huachuca closed right after World War II. When it reopened in 1954, it was a completely different military base. It no longer was home to segregated soldiers, and the basic mission of the base changed from training combat infantry soldiers to providing support services to the Army. The pre-1954 community of Fry was one filled with crime, corruption, prostitution, and so forth. Some of the City’s founding fathers chose to line their pockets by taking advantage of the black troops assigned to Fort Huachuca. This presentation takes a look at the “Dark Side” of Sierra Vista’s history.
