Tucson Pioneers: Evergreen Mem. Pk A Virtual Cemetery created by: Carolyn Gray
Description: Evergreen Cemetery was founded in 1907 as the new final resting spot for many Tucson pioneers. Several of the burials from the old cemetery within the town limits (Stone/Alameda and Court Street Cems)—along with the Presidio Cemetery-- were relocated two miles north to Evergreen. The current location of the Old Town Artisans Complex at 201 N. Court Street was the site of New Spain's Tucson Presidio Fort's horse stables and corrals in 1775. Many of the badly injured Spanish soldiers who came in there after their ill fated patrols to track down the marauding bands of Apache Indians died right there in that corral.Reburial site for many of Tucson's earliest settlers.
