El Presidio is where it all began for Tucson. Predominately a Historic Residential district, it boasts some of the most interesting architecture. Homes Dating from 1860 to 1920 still remain. Exceptionally constructed architecture includes both adobe, Sonoran and Anglo styles such as Transformed Sonoran, Transitional Territorial, Mission Revival and Craftsman Bungalow. Named for the Spanish built Presidio San Augustin del Tucson, it is one of the nations’ oldest inhabited sites. The 1775 presidio was built on a prehistoric Hohokan Indian site dating back to 700-900 A.D. The district is roughly bounded by W. 6th St., W. Alameda St., N. Stone Ave. and Granada Ave. The Tucson Museum of Art, 140 N Main Ave., offers tours of the historic block in the district on which the museum is located. Many of the early founding fathers, merchants and bankers lived in this area and built splendid homes which carry their names including the Steinfelds and Jacomes, Sam Hughes and J. Knox Corbett. This walkable neighborhood hosts wonderful restaurants like Café a la C’art and the courtyard and shops of the old town artisans as well as reenactments of life in the old presidio.
