Tubac Presidio State Historic Park 

Arizona's first state park preserves the site of the oldest Spanish presidio and the first European settlement in Arizona established in 1752. The park features a museum, underground archaeological exhibit, Arizona's first printing press, an 1885 territorial schoolhouse and other turn-of-the-century structures, and the trailhead for the historic Anza Trail, from which Juan Bautista de Anza departed when he established San Francisco. Giclées of William Ahrendt paintings from the Arizona Highways "Cavalcade of History" collection are displayed in the gallery. Cultural events include Anza Days in October; Spanish Colonial living history; archaeological tours; nature walks; and concerts. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., daily; $5, $2 age 7 to 13, free younger child. Call or visit TubacPresidioPark.com for more information.
