Etch your family into Tucson history

Did you hear the news?! The fountain in front of the Historic Sosa-Carrillo House is getting revamped and you and your family have the opportunity to purchase an engraved brick around the fountain! Use the link below to create a 3 or 6 line brick honoring your Tucson roots! Proceeds benefit Los Descendientes del Presidio de Tucson and the Mexican American Heritage and History Museum.

Phase I of the bricks will be placed on the fountain’s east side (closest to the Sosa-Carrillo House). Phase II will have a later deadline, and those bricks will be on the fountain’s west side.

Parking and Accessibility

The MAHHM is currently surrounded by a Tucson Convention Center construction project, making parking unclear. You can enter the northernmost parking lot off of Granada Ave. There are disabled parking spaces near the southwest of the Sosa-Carrillo House. The museum is one story and wheelchair accessible. Please email with any accommodation questions or requests.
