Located 40 miles south of Tucson, Tubac was established in 1752 as a Spanish presidio. This quaint artist's village is said to be the place "Where Art and History Meet." The first inhabitants were the Hohokam who lived here between 300 and 1400 A.D. In the 1500's, the O'odham or Pima/Papago came to the area and the O'odham tribe continues to live near here on their own land. The Spaniards arrived in 1691, when the Jesuit missionary Father Francisco Eusebio Kino traveled through the Santa Cruz Valley building missions and farms. By 1860, Tubac was known as one of the largest towns in Arizona. It declined after the Civil War broke out when many residents left to fight the war. Today, the small, picturesque community is one of Arizona's important art centers and historic sites.
