Don't Stop the Press

A visit to Tubac isn't complete without a visit to the Tubac Presidio State Historic Park. Read about the park, inclucing a little of the history behind the original presidio (fort), and the surrounding area, at the park's official website, here: http://azstateparks.com/parks/TUPR/index.html. This recreated printing room is one display in the park museum.
