The El Presidio Historic District
Tucson, Arizona

DirectionThe El Presidio Historic District
El Presidio Historic District is roughly bounded by W. 6th St., W. Alameda St., N. Stone Ave. and Granada Ave. in downtown Tucson, Arizona.  The Tucson Museum of Art, 140 N Main Ave., offers tours of the historic block in the district on which the museum is located. Tours are offered October-April at 11:00am, on Wednesdays and Thursdays.   There is also a tour of the J. Knox Corbett House on the block on Tuesdays at 11:00 am, October-April. Call 520-624-2333 or visit the museum's website for further information.

Description
The El Presidio Historic District is a residential neighborhood containing adobe and brick buildings in the Spanish-Mexican, Anglo-American and Eclectic architectural styles. Named for the Spanish-built Presidio de San Augustín del Tucson (1775), El Presidio is one of the nation's oldest inhabited sites.  The district is on the site of a prehistoric Hohokam Indian site (c. 700-900 A.D.) and the original presidio (fort).  The El Presidio Historic District reflects Tucson's development from an 18th-century walled compound to its emergence as a major 20th-century mercantile center.
