Salon & Saloon: Tucson’s Presidio During the Mexican Era, 1821-1854
Presenter: Historian and Presidio Trust Board Member Mauro Trejo
Saturday, Jan. 20, 2 pm
$5/person at the door, or register online by clicking here.

Hear what life was like in Tucson during the Mexican Era, a transitional and important period, which is often glossed over in most tellings of our history. Discussions will include events that affected life here prior to Mexican Independence, what life was like in Tucson at the time, and what made the Mexican Era in Tucson so significant.

Mauro Trejo is a 7th generation Tucsonan descending from Elias’s and Gallegos. Mauro has a passion for local history and has poured over the Tucson “classics” to learn as much as possible.   Before becoming a Presidio Trust Board Member he volunteered as a docent and Turquoise Trail tour guide (which he still does), becoming one of our most knowledgeable.

**Lectures are held across the street from the Presidio Museum in the Monsoon Room at JoJo’s Restaurants, 201 N. Court Ave. Food and drinks are available for sale during the lecture.
