About Oracle

Oracle is a small, unincorporated, Arizona mountain town dating from 1880. Its population was 3686 in the 2010 census, not including cattle, horses, llamas and wild critters. The town is located in Pinal County, 30 miles north of Tucson city limits. Situated on the northeastern slopes of the Santa Catalina Mountains, Oracle lies at an elevation of 4500 feet.

Oracle got its name from its first mine, claimed by Albert Weldon, who named it Oracle in honor of the ship owned and captained by his uncle. Weldon had sailed on that ship from Boston to the west coast many years earlier. More about Weldon and the ship can be found here.
