Old Town Tubac Historic Adobe Building Tour
November 11, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Some of Tubac’s oldest historic buildings will be again welcoming visitors for a rare opportunity to tour inside during the Old Town Tubac Historic Adobe Building Tour on Saturday, November 11, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The tour is expected to include at least seven historic adobe buildings within Tubac’s National Historic District . One of the buildings is believed to have garrisoned Spanish Colonial Soldiers in the mid-1700s. Others are known to have housed some of Arizona’s earliest 19th century Anglo settlers and others were built on existing foundations at the turn of the 20th Century by Tubac’s Hispanic Heritage Families. Tubac’s artist colony had its modern beginnings in some of these buildings portions of which are known to have existed in 1767 and where the tradition of Tubac; Where Art and History Meet continues to this day.
Docents will provide guided tours inside the buildings and share with participants the history of the occupants and the building, and point out architectural features which help bring the Tubac history and her history makers’ lives back to life.
