Presidio San Agustín del Tucsón or Fort Tucson is a presidio located within Tucson, Arizona. If you don't speak Spanish it might be easier to just say the Tucson Presidio. Either way, this historical wonder Presidio San Augustin del Tucson was established in August 1775 by Spanish Army Colonel Hugo O'Conor. The original Tucson Presidio fortress was built by Spanish conquistadors during the eighteenth century. Fort Tucson Presidio was the founding structure of what became Tucson. The original Tucson Presidio walls and bastions vanished over the years though a reconstructed bastion was built in 2008 over foundations of the original structure. Tucson has been inhabited by many different cultures over its 250 year history and had a role in several military conflicts.

And it was, in every way, a "presidio" (fort) it was the site of very real assaults by the Apache Indians. Perhaps because of the Tucson Presidio high wear and tear it was subjected to, the Tucson Presidio was quite a sight in its day: huge wood palisades and 700-foot-long adobe walls both protected and intimidated. Never mind that it eventually fell victim to history as the American West grew around it, and it was completely dismantled by 1918.

Today, the Tucson Presidio Trust for Historic Preservation has conducted archaeological excavations and reconstructed much of the Presidio San Agustín del Tucsón fort to its original grandeur. There's a 20-foot-tall adobe tower, and the 10-foot adobe walls have reappeared; there's a powder magazine, a renovated Plaza Militar and even a renovated triplex with a museum and gift shop. And the remains of the 11-acre Tucson Presidio are preserved and depicted on a large wall mural.
