University of Arizona Walking Tour
November 15, 9-11:30 am
After a discussion of the interesting beginnings of the University in 1885, we will tour the historic portion of the campus beginning with the Main Gate at University at Park. The history, the personalities, and the architecture will be emphasized in a somewhat chronological order. The architecture of the older buildings varies from Classical Revival to Italian and Spanish Romanesque. The tour will also include newer sites such as the Women’s Plaza of Honor and the Student Union Memorial Center. As we stroll the campus, we will investigate some of the plants – the University is a recognized arboretum – and the public art. The tour will end after a short visit to the front of the Arizona History Museum.
***This tour is 1.25-miles long and meets in the Arizona Historical Center Parking Lot on the northeast corner of Euclid and 2nd Street.
