About Us

 

 


Sunnyside was a settlement located at Sunnyside Canyon in the Huachuca Mountains.  It was established as religious community in the early 1900's.  Samuel Donnelly established the community and the town was composed of hard working miners and their families.  These miners and their families were known as "Donnellites".  Unlike other mining towns of the era this town was based on the work ethic, religion and bible reading.  Anyone was welcome but they had to be willing to follow the rules and all monies made by anyone was put into the community, the residents were living as socialists.  Everyone contributed to the community by doing whatever they were good at.  The community was said to be generous in helping those less fortunate.  When the mine ceased producing enough ore  in the mid to late 1930's the residents all moved elsewhere to find work.  Post office established July 16, 1914.

This town is still pretty much intact as it is located on private property.  Access is limited and it's hard to get to.

Currently at this time we have no photographs or other information.  If you would like to contribute to this page or any other page on our site with photos, etc. we will put your name under the photos.
