Tucson Heritage & Culture

Heritage & Culture

Travel Through Tucson's Rich History

Arizona only became a state in 1912, and the region—formerly part of Mexico—wasn't even a U.S. territory until the 1840s. The area is also one of the earliest inhabited areas of the country, with evidence of Hohokam settlements dating back thousands of years.

All of these elements make Tucson one of the most culturally rich cities of the West and a mecca for history buffs looking for a truly distinctive lens into America's past.

Expand your mind and see history in a new light as you observe ancient Native American sites at Murray Springs and Signal Hill, follow the trails of early Spanish explorers, witness a reenactment of the shootout at OK Corral, and travel deep into Arizona's copper-mining past that gave technology to the world.
