Through our Parents' Eyes: Tucson's diverse community
outpost in the late 1700's, to the bustling Southwestern city it is today. Hispanic Americans have been
involved in all aspects of community affairs since the founding of the city by Spanish-speaking settlers in
1775. Indeed, much of the cultural flavor of Tucson can be traced to our Hispanic roots. This exhibit
traces the history of Hispanic Americans in Tucson, explaining the strong ties Tucson has with the Spanish
and Mexican cultures.
