Douglas is located in Cochise County east of Nogales between Willcox and the United States/Mexico border along Highway 80.
The town of Douglas was founded as the site of a copper smelter in 1901. The town was named after Dr. James Douglas, then president of Phelps Dodge. The historic residential areas, Church Square and the Gadsden Hotel are all memorials of the mining times.
Residents and visitors of the area are within close proximity to year-round outdoor recreation areas and the opportunity for convenient shopping and sight-seeing in Mexico. Because of this, Douglas has been a popular tourism and retirement community in Arizona.
