Tubac School at Tubac Presidio State Park Preliminary Architectural Evaluation and Recommendations for Use

Author(s): Gerald A. Doyle & Associates

Year: 1985

Summary

The Tubac School, one of the several elements comprising the Tubac Presidio State Park, was constructed in 1885 and is one of the earliest American public schools established in what was then the Territory of Arizona. Although no significant historical events are yet associated with the Tubac School, and many other Territorial buildings are of greater architectural interest, the School is an unusually well-preserved example of 19th Century one-room, rural schools.

Today the building consists of four distinct elements; the original one room school; a major early addition constructed at an undetermined date, but probably before 1928; and trio later additions constructed at unestablished date(s).
