El Presidio Historic District

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).

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 (tucsonmuseumofart.org).
