Historian, Ken Scoville will tell the story of the Fort Lowell district, which is so much more than just the military history of the Fort itself. Inhabited for hundreds, if not thousands of years, centuries of change and growth in this area parallel the history of Arizona. In the beginning, the Hohokam and other pre-historic agriculturists were drawn to the oases at the confluence of the Pantano Wash and Tanque Verde Creek as early as the first century AD. In the 19th century, water again brought settlers and farmers and the United States military, moving the Fort from downtown in 1873. Learn how the physical features, cultural layers, and political decisions have shaped not just the story of the district, but the development of Arizona as well. From Apache Wars to development wars, discover a new perspective on the history of Tucson and Arizona. Although masks are no longer required at Tohono Chul, masks are encouraged at this class per our instructor’s request.
