Old West Experiences
Presidio del San Agustín
The Presidio del San Agustin is Tucson’s reconstructed Spanish fort originally built in 1775 which stood through the late 1800’s. Today a portion of it stands on the same ground where it was originally built. Remains of the original foundation are still present. Visit any time to see Museum exhibits about early Tucson and the many cultures that first came together during the Colonial Period. Docents are available to provide brief tours of the Territorial era house and courtyard as well as the rebuilt Presidio. The Presidio also comes to life during Living History days with interpreters in period dress performing daily activities including bread making in the adobe oven, blacksmithing, soldiering and much more. Check the website for Living History days (second Saturday of the month during winter hours) and for other special events and activities. tucsonpresidio.com

Take a trip back in time to a genuine Old West town. Founded in 1879, Tombstone was one of the last wide-open frontier boomtowns in the American Old West. The town was established on a mesa above the Tough Nut Mine. In its heyday, Tombstone had four churches, an ice house, a school, two banks, three newspapers, an ice cream parlor, 110 saloons, and 14 gambling halls. All of this was situated on top of a large number of dirty, hardscrabble mines. The gentlemen and ladies of Tombstone attended operas presented by visiting acting troupes at the Schieffelin Hall opera house while the miners and cowboys saw shows at the Bird Cage Theatre – the wildest, wickedest night spot between Basin Street and the Barbary Coast. Visit these sites and more. See where the gunfight at the O.K. Corral took place and watch a reenactment. Visit the courthouse building, Boot Hill Cemetery, Big Nose Kate’s Saloon, or take a stagecoach ride down Main Street.
