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

My husband and I spent 3 days over the end of the year at La Posada with friends. It was one of the most enjoyable getaways we have had. This charming destination and well trained staff served up great food, kept our rooms spotlessly clean and met our every request. After a quiet night in very comfortable beds followed by a breakfast of local flavors, we were introduced to the community and learned about the culture of the people who reside there. Our hosts were warm and generous. Our thanks to La Posada and the people of Banamichi, Bill andClee
