The directories document the population and businesses of 19th century Arizona and are used on a daily basis by researchers. In addition to a list of residents and businesses, researchers can find occupations, if a woman was a widow or head of household, or whether the resident owned or rented the property. Many directories contain a history of the city, state and region, information on the climate, topography and natural resources of the area, and in some instances photographs.
