Historic Tucson

The Old Pueblo has many buildings of historical significance. The downtown barrio was bulldozed during the Tucson Urban Renewal Project in the late 1960s to make way for the Convention Center and many historic structures were destroyed. This photo journey is a way to recognize the ones that still remain throughout the city.

Three excellent books: C. L. Sonnichsen's TUCSON...THE LIFE AND TIMES OF AN AMERICAN CITY, John Bret Harte's TUCSON...PORTRAIT OF A DESERT PUEBLO and R. Brooks Jeffery and Anne M. Nequette's A GUIDE TO TUCSON ARCHITECTURE.

Roger Carpenter's book of Tucson stories and photos called LETTERS FROM TUCSON, 1925-1927 is another wonderful way to recapture Old Tucson.

The Walking Tours of Tucson offered by the historical society is a great way to explore the city by foot with a guide. And just for the fun of it, try renting the 1939 DVD movie "ARIZONA" which was filmed here in Tucson.
