Tubac Presidio State Historic Park Website »
Tubac Presidio's museum holds interpretive exhibits displaying the Native American, Spanish Colonial, Mexican Republic, and American Territorial cultures. A preserved archaeological excavation shows the foundations and walls of the 1752 fort. The Park also has three buildings on the National Register of Historic Places to augment its displays.
See our special exhibit on Juan Bautista de Anza. Anza led the 1776 colonizing expedition of 40 soldiers, 200 civilians (66 of whom were from Tubac) and 1000 head of livestock to establish and populate the Alta California presidio known today as San Francisco.
