Local historian and preservationist, Ken Scoville is passionate about Tucson and its past. Whenever development threatens the Old Pueblo, Scoville is there to argue for the streets, the buildings and the history that cannot speak for themselves. What better guide to take us on a walking tour of Tucson’s history? We’ll  peel back the layers of culture, architectural styles and citizen’s attitudes and reveal why Tucson is the city it is today, discovering the architectural traditions that have evolved throughout Tucson’s development. Meet the pioneer families that established homes along the Camino Real and marvel at the homes of the elite built along today’s Main Avenue. “History is all about trying to understand humans,” Scoville says, “and El Presidio is my living lesson.” Cost includes transportation to and from the Presidio Museum, our starting point; guide services, information packet and lunch at Café a la C’arte in the historic Stevens House next door to the Tucson Museum of Art.
