Saved from Tucson’s 1960s’ urban renewal, the 1870s’ Sosa-Carrillo House is worth visiting as a beautifully preserved example of Sonoran and Territorial architecture.
Once part of the Barrio Libre neighborhood, this typical Sonoran row house features a central hall (zaguán) leading from the front door to the rear courtyard, which includes a Black Mission fig tree, an offspring of stock from the Spanish Mission Era.
In addition to public spaces and exhibits, the house is home to Borderlands Theatre Company and Los Descendientes.

Admission: Free, donations welcome
