The courthouse was dedicated in honor of G. T. "Tom" Alley on July 20, 2001. Alley was a prominent figure in Ajo history. A businessman and investor, Tom Alley came to Ajo in the 1930s. He served on the Pima County Board of Supervisors from 1943 until 1950. He later served in the Arizona House of Representatives from 1972 until 1976. He died December 24, 1994, in Tucson.
Ajo first located on the ground that later became the open pit mine. The modern city was formed in its present location in 1917 coincident with the beginning of the large scale mining of the copper deposits. Ajo was the home of the New Cornelia mine of the Phelps Dodge Corporation which is one of the great copper mines of the world.
