4,000 years ago, the Hohokam were living along the banks of the Santa Cruz River, but we tend to date Tucson from a particular August 20th in 1775. Ken Scoville examines the founding of our town and describes how a simple Spanish Presidio became the city we know today. From the first wooden palisade, he charts the changes that have occurred over time, the sequence of governments that have occupied the same location and the architectural traditions of each major era in the development of Tucson. And find out why downtown’s Presidio Museum sits at the corner of Church and Washington.
