Comments:

Kofa, also historically known as Kofa Station, is a populated place situated in Yuma County, Arizona.  The town, like the nearby hills of the same name, was derived from the acronym for “King of Arizona”, which had been coined by Colonel Eugene Ives. Ives had purchased a nearby mine from Charles Eichelberg for $250,000, which he named the King of Arizona Mine.
