Pima is located in the Gila (Hee-la) Valley. It is near the town of Thatcher and the city of Safford.
Head into Pima on Highway 70, which becomes Center Street in Pima.
From Center Street, turn south on 300 West (west side of town). At the stop sign, turn right on 100 South. You will cross over the railroad tracks that run through town. 100 South bends to the south and becomes 400 West. Continue down 400 West to the Pima Cemetery gates (at the interstection of 800 South). Drive into the cemetery and turn right. Go down this lane until you reach the lane that takes you to the flag pole and brick monument in the center of the old cemetery. go plast the flag on the right side and turn right into the tree lined lane. The first tall Italian Cyprus tree on your left holds the letterbox. It is in the lower branches of the tree. Please rehide this well.
There are no gates to shut the cemetery, but the sign out front says it is closed from 6 pm to 6 am.
This cemetery has many interesting graves here. From Civil War heros to pioneers. There is even a man burried here who's grave says "scalped by indians".
Take a look around one of our favorite places in Pima.
The people are dying to get in. :o)
