The Presidio Museum comes alive allowing visitors to get a feel for life in the Presidio during the late 18th-century New Spain Period and the 19th-century Territorial Period.
This month, the event will focus on the different ethnicities and cultures that have made Tucson the diverse city it is today. From the village here prior to the arrival of the Spanish in 1775, to becoming a part of independent Mexico, and finally an American state in 1912 the city has been influenced by the many ethnicities that have called this area home.
