Six of those adobe mansions you've been curious about in Barrio Viejo are open for a tour tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
It's well worth the $35 tour fee to see the insides of these adobe structures that define our distinctive Tucson style. Many contain furniture and decor consistent with the period of construction.
But the tour benefits even more landmarks we love, including the Valley of the Moon, the Cactus Drive-in, all our cool neon signs and that classic mid-century commercial architecture on Broadway, among many other projects stewarded by the tour's organizers, the Tucson Historic Preservation Association.
