The area south of Sierra Vista, known as Carr Canyon, is rich with historical and natural history. Charles Robert Biederman, a Civil War soldier, homesteaded there, collected insects for museums, and created a method for grafting walnut trees. The Carr House was built in the 1930s by Virginia Moson Martin, stepdaughter of Colonel Greene, for copper and cattle fame. The ruins in the meadow tell stories relating to miners in the area, Todd family homesteaders, and Colonel John and Ila Healy, their unique history with Fort Huachuca, and connections with hunters and naturalists of the area. Discover what called them to the canyon!
