Chihuahua was founded in 1709, on the intersection of the Chuviscar and Sacramento rivers.  It was an important center of Spanish missionary activity.

During the Mexican-American War, Chihuahua fell to U.S. forces in 1847, after the Mexican Army was defeated at the Battle of the Sacramento River, 15 miles north of the city.

Chihuahua is now a significant industrial city, with nearly a million residents.
