Tour the Architecture of Downtown Tucson

Note: This post refers to an event that took place on Apr 25, 2015.


Tour guide Dr. R. Brooks Jeffery, Director of the Drachman Institute at the University of Arizona, will lead us on a walking tour of Downtown Tucson’s varied and distinctive architectural landscapes. Understand the history of the Old Barrio as we explore its many storied streetscapes. Details concerning tour stops are being developed but the route will be focused on late nineteenth and early to mid-twentieth century architecture. Following the trip, enjoy lunch at one of the many new downtown restaurants that operate in these historic spaces (Penca, Pizzeria Bianco, Diablo Burger, Proper, The Hub, or Reilly Craft Pizza, among others). For additional information about Tucson architecture, its evolution, and much more check out A Guide to Tucson Architecture (Nequette and Jeffery 2002). To register for the trip contact trip leader Cannon Daughtrey.
