TUMACACORI NATIONAL HISTORICAL PARK

Located in Santa Cruz County, in southern Arizona and just north of Nogales, Mexico, this historic site is home to one of the chain of missions founded by Father Eusebio Francisco Kino in 1691. You can explore the mission and the mission grounds, wander through the historic gardens and orchard, enjoy the bird life, the museum, and special annual events and ranger programs. To get more out of your visit, try taking a guided tour. It is the first main stop on the Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail, an auto route and a recreational trail that passes through the park. This provides opportunities for walkers, bird watchers, and horseback riders to enjoy parts of the Santa Cruz River. The park is just a 45-50 minute drive south of Tucson, but the main gateway community is the art town of Tubac. There are golf resorts, B&B Inns, shops, restaurants, plus, the Tubac Presidio State Park (which is also part of the Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail), in the area.

This historical park was originally established as a Monument on Sept. 15, 1908; and then became an Historical Park on August 6, 1990.
