Hooves & Rails:A History of the Tucson Street Railway 1897 - 1906

This University of Arizona web exhibit traces the history of the railway in the region. In the late nineteenth century, Tucson was a growing town with a strong desire to project a metropolitan image.

One key to continued development was the establishment of dependable public
transportation to move Tucsonans around their newly bustling city. This is the
story of the first streetcar line: the horse-drawn Tucson Street Railway.
