Gila County Comprehensive Plan: Chapter 2
The existing land use pattern of Gila County can be traced to its historical settlement by early miners, ranchers and loggers. Communities in the southern portions of the county such as Hayden, Winkelman, Miami and Globe have their roots and their patterns of development linked to early mining and mineral exploration activities. The communities of Hayden, Winkelman, Miami and Globe generally have a compact development style organized around linear streets with a traditional downtown commercial core. Communities in the northern portion of the county including Young, Pine and Strawberry have ranching and timbering roots and have generally developed in a more rural fashion.
