This is a place for discussions of historic preservation in Armory Park, and what benefits and challenges it presents. Local history is another subject addressed here and in web pages. I will publish articles here when it seems helpful; readers are invited to comment. To support the mission of this site, acceptable comments are those that contribute to reasonable historic preservation, better understanding of our history and serve the interests of Armory Park residents. Others may be invited to post here also. Please let me know if you want to do so.

 I've started posting history articles in the History web pages. The most recent is about the railroads that helped to shape Tucson. The Southern Pacific was the principal force in the creation of the Armory Park neighborhood. Railroad employees at various levels of the company owned or rented in Armory Park. The land on which Armory Park del Sol is situated was railroad property until recent decades.
