The El Presidio neighborhood is one of many historic areas in Tucson. Its roots trace to the construction of the Spanish fort known as El Presidio San Agustin del Tucson in 1787. The fort was built of adobe walls and was functional for nearly 100 years. In its early years, El Presidio was bordered by Church Street on the east, Washington Street on the north, Main Street on the west, and West Pennington on the south.

The Modern El Presidio neighborhood is a much smaller area. It is home to historic adobe-style homes as well as rental residences and business offices. Many homes built by wealthy Tucson families in the 1900s have been restored to their earlier elegance. The area at that time was known as “Snob Hollow” and is situated on the west side of Main Avenue.

The El Presidio neighborhood is home to some of the oldest homes in Tucson. On Cordova Ave is the Meyer House, built around 1850. The Sam Hughes house and the Fisher-Stevens house date back to the 1860s.

El Presidio Park is a site that was dedicated in 1775 by Colonel Hugo O’Conor of the Spanish Army. The park contains Tucson’s Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Visitors often pay military respects to the brave service members who fought in this war.

El Presidio neighborhood is part of the Historic Art Block that includes the Tucson Museum of Art. Both residents and visitors can view the many exhibits, one of which is the cowboy museum. This exhibit shows how life was in the 1800s and early 1900s in the Tucson area.

Many visitors marvel at this quaint Tucson community with its predominantly Spanish culture and history. The neighborhood was designated a historic district in 1975. Unfortunately, many historic homes were lost prior to this because of modernization and urban renewal. Still, El Presidio is a delight to visitors and residents alike.
