Greenlee County was created from the eastern part of Graham County by act of the 25th Territorial Legislature on March 10, 1909, but not until 1911 was the new county finally organized as an active unit. The delay was caused by political difficulties between the mother county and the new county. The youngest county in Arizona, Greenlee is principally a mining and stock raising area containing 1,199, 360 acres. The county seat is at Clifton."
