$10 per Live Attendee or per Zoom Link 

How did anyone live without air conditioning, or even swamp coolers, when this truly was the Old Pueblo?  Local historian Ken Scoville donates his time to explore Territorial Tucson and the strategies to endure and evade the summer with ollas, adobe architecture, and nights sleeping under the stars.  Even then there were some cool escapes, some close by or farther away.  Thanks to George Hand and his famous Saloon Diary, there is first-hand (pun intended) commentary about this distinct way of life during summer in the desert.  Attendees may listen live on the outdoor Territorial Patio at the Presidio Museum or listen via Zoom. Ice cream will be served to in-person attendees to keep you cool as well!  Click here to register for in-person attendance or watch the lecture via Zoom
