Who we are

We are a group of Tucson residents committed to re-creating and authentically presenting the historic structures and landscapes to the regional community and visitors in the area known as Tucson’s Birthplace. To that end we have formed an organization to undertake the completion of the Tucson Origins Heritage Park.

Our mission is to preserve, honor, protect, restore and promote the cultural heritage of Tucson’s Birthplace at the foot of Sentinel Peak (‘A Mountain’).

To accomplish this our organization partners with like-minded groups locally, regionally, nationally and internationally in order to inform Tucsonans and visitors of this rich and unique cultural treasure.

Our first focus is to complete the Mission Garden, a project begun under voter-approved public funds and to be completed in a public/private partnership with Friends of Tucson’s Birthplace.

Our goals do not only include the construction and planting of the Garden, but also its successful operation and maintenance. We are also engaged in ensuring the preservation and development of the remainder of Tucson Origins Heritage Park as a historical area, as defined in COT’s Proposition 400, which passed in 1999. We are seeking to accomplish all this by enlisting public support, training volunteers and pursuing funding through donations and grants.

What Others Are Saying

First of all I’m a little bias in that the owners of La Posada are my friends, but I think I can be objective enough. First of all I like the location, right on the main plaza, across from the church, you’re right in the middle of everything. Then I love the convenience of the restaurant with the doors and windows that open to the outside, great place to sit and beyond the food, connect to the internet to take care of the necessaries. The food is simple, but predictably good, typical of foods from that region. The rooms are more than comfortable. I traveled many years down there before it was ever possible to find the comfort level that one experiences at the hotel. And for me, its a place that connects to the town, the feeling is one of Sonora, not something owned and transplanted by Americans. The owners have done a good job of keeping that intact.
