Alta SouthwestHistorical Records
In July, 2010, we bought an existing survey company in Bisbee, AZ, Arizona Land Specialists. In addition to the records of ALS from 2001 to 2010, the purchase also included the survey records from numerous other survey companies that practiced surveying in the Bisbee and Cochise County vicinity over the last 100 or more years.
These records included tens of thousands of original unrecorded maps and survey records of Riddell and Associates, Bisbee Engineering, Cleave Lundgren, GPS Surveying, Gordon Ray and Ralph L. Motz, who was the Bisbee City Engineer at the turn of the century. These maps have proven to be very helpful in performing boundary surveys in Cochise County and have quite often enabled Alta to determine boundary locations that would not be possible to a surveyor not in possession of these records.
