Dedicated to the preservation of the history and culture of Tucson from its inception to the present.


Our goal is to support the preservation of Primeria Alta family histories. Our Volunteers explore and interpret the past with us. Part of this is to record oral family histories while our aging pioneers are still with us.

The end result is to acquire a historic structure where these artifacts and documents may be archived, stored and displayed before they are lost to future generations.

Annual Installation of Officers and Membership Dinner.

February 9th from 2pm to 5pm at the Viscount Hotel on East Broadway. $15 at the door includes dinner and the event. RSVP to Annie Lopez at 520-647-7007 or
