Tubac Presidio Dedication as a National Historic Site in Journalism – Sat., March 23

The Society of Professional Journalists will dedicate the Tubac Presidio State Historic Park as a National Historic Site in Journalism. Since 1942, this national organization has honored the people and places that have played important roles in the history of journalism. The Tubac Presidio is being recognized as the home of Arizona’s first newspaper, The Weekly Arizonian, which was published in Tubac on March 3, 1859. The Washington Hand Press on which the paper was printed is displayed at the Park and continues to be operated by volunteers who print copies of that first paper for visitors. Activities will include demonstrations of the original Washington Hand Press from 11am-3pm. Please call for more details, 520-398-2252, or visit www.TubacPresidioPark.com.
