Pusch Ridge, one of the highest peaks visible from Oro Valley was named for this early Settler.

Oro Valley benefited from the post-World War II housing boom with many homes built on large, ranch style lots as there were no tract housing developments. Steady growth in the 1960’s attracted the attention of Tucson that was interested in annexing the town. Oro Valley residents did not want to join Tucson and had to sue Pima County to win that right.
