Tucson, AZ 85746

San Xavier del bac Mission
Mission San Xavier del Bac is situated in the Santa Cruz Valley 
nine miles south of Tucson, Arizona on the Tohono O'odham
Native American Reservation.

The celebrated Jesuit missionary and explorer, Father Eusebio 
Francisco Kino, first visited Bac in 1692.  Eight years later 
in 1700, Father Kino laid the foundations of the first church, 
some two miles north of the present site of the Mission.  He 
named it San Xavier in honor of his chosen patron, St. Francis 
Xavier, the illustrious Jesuit "Apostle of the Indies."

In 1768, Fray Francisco Hermengildo Garces, a man of outstanding 
personality and prodigious accomplishments among all missionaries 
in Arizona, established his headquarters at San Xavier. From here 
this Franciscan Friar set forth on his many missionary explorations.
The present church was built from 1783 - 1797 by the Franciscan 
Fathers Juan Bautista Velderrain and Juan Bautista Llorenz.  

San Xavier Mission is acclaimed by many to be the finest example 
of mission architecture in the United States.  It is a graceful 
blend of Moorish, Byzantine and late Mexican Renaissance 
architecture, yet the blending is so complete it is hard to tell 
where one type begins and another ends.

After more than two hundred years, the Franciscan Friars are 
still here serving the needs of the faithful.  San Xavier del 
Bac Mission is a fully functioning parish church within the 
Diocese of Tucson.  It is a church that primarily serves the 
Tohono O'odham, but is open to all.

Casa Grande Ruins National Monumument
Shoppe at Civano Facebook Photo Gallery Albums
In 1694, Father Eusebio Francisco Kino described his visit to 
Casa Grande, or "Big House," as a 4-story structure built by 
the Hohokam in the mid-1300s. Constructed with layers of caliche 
mud, the walls of the tower are 4 1/2 feet thick at the base. 
This mysterious structure, with holes in 3 walls, is believed 
to have been used for astronomical observation. Casa Grande is 
the largest structure built by the Hohokam and represents the 
height of their architecture.

Casa Grande Ruins National Monument preserves an ancient Hohokam 
farming community and "Great House." Created as the nation?s 
first archeological reserve in 1892, the site was declared a 
National Monument in 1918 ?in order that better provision may 
be made for the protection, preservation and care of the ruins 
and the ancient buildings and other objects of prehistoric 
interest thereon.?

Fort Bowie National Historic Site
Shoppe at Civano Facebook Photo Gallery Albums
Fort Bowie commemorates the bitter conflict between Chiricahua 
Apaches and the U.S. military - a lasting monument to the bravery 
and endurance of U.S. soldiers in paving the way for settlement 
and the taming of the western frontier. It provides insight into 
a "clash of cultures," a young nation in pursuit of "manifest 
destiny," and the hunter/gatherer society fighting to preserve 
its existence.

For more than 30 years Fort Bowie and Apache Pass were the focal 
point of military operations eventually culminating in the 
surrender of Geronimo in 1886 and the banishment of the Chiricahuas 
to Florida and Alabama. It was the site of the Bascom Affair, a 
wagon train massacre, and the battle of Apache Pass, where a large 
force of Chiricahua Apaches under Mangus Colorados and Cochise 
fought the California Volunteers.

to Bisbee, where it remains.

Tucson Gem & Mineral Show
For two weeks every winter, the world meets in Tucson as it 
becomes a bustling, international marketplace of buyers and

There's something for everyone at the many open-to-the-public

beads, and from fine specimens of dinosaur fossils to opals 
dug from the Australian Outback. 

The main event of this two-week showcase is the Tucson Gem & 
Mineral Show? which packs downtown's Tucson Convention Center 
over the final weekend. This show attracts thousands of 
treasure hunters from every corner of the globe and is open

use. The course layout features tight fairways, small greens, 
relatively flat terrain, two lakes, and numerous trees. El Rio

Fred Enke Golf Course was officially dedicated December 
3, 1983. Enke offers golfers a different but interesting 
and challenging approach to golf course design. 
The major features of the course are its vast teeing areas,

important of all, its concept as a semi-arid, limited turf 
course. Grass is used only on the tees, ball landing area, 
and greens, with undisturbed native plants comprising the 
remainder of the landscaping. 

Golfers have the option of four teeing areas. Respectively,

Oro Valley Country Club:
Lou Landon, a man with a vision, vacationed in the Tucson area and 
was taken with the thought that there was a real need for an 
additional golf course in the northern portion of Pima County.  
At that time there were only three golf courses serving a population 
of about 250,000 people.

Robert Bruce Harris, noted golf course architect, was commissioned 
to design a championship golf course to be built on the property 
selected by the Landon group.  A construction contract was signed 
on July 28, 1958, calling for a completion date by December 28, 1958, 
and was delivered to Oro Valley Inc. exactly on time.

relatively flat Native Terrain. One Lake comes into play on 3 
holes. There are numerous Mature Trees and lots of Wildlife.

measures 7,000 yards from the championship tees and 6,500 yards 
from the regular tees. The scenic course setting offers numerous 
tall trees, lush fairways, and a beautiful view of the mountains

and sports three rearranged holes. These were reconstructed 
according to PGA recommendations to enhance the course and make 
it more challenging for the pros.

Tucson Country Club is one of the few "Grand Old Gems" left 
in the world of golf.  Poised in the middle of the Sonoran 
Desert, stately trees rise to the heights of one hundred thirty 
feet above her fairways, regally gracing her grounds.  To the 
North, East and Southeast, she is bordered by magnificent and 
imposing mountain views.  

Tucson Country Club's tradition of pure golf, with no compromise 
to development or urban sprawl, is a tradition that dates back 
to 1947, when course architect Billy Bell first singled out this 
magnificent property - this rich lowland that the Navajo and 
Yavapi once farmed, and magically transformed her into a golf 
course like no other.   The 18-hole course (7000+ yards) is 
tree-lined, in a Midwestern style of design.  And, it is the 
best walking course in Tucson, with nature's abundant creatures 
surviving and thriving in this area.
