Armory Park Neighborhood History

Armory Park began life as a military plaza and armory between 1862 and 1873. The rowdy behavior of the soldiers created tension with the neighbors, and the armory was relocated to Fort Lowell.

In 1880 the neighborhood grew rapidly with the arrival of the railroad. The railroad made it possible to import more materials such as brick, milled lumber, pressed tin, and paints in greater supply. This allowed architectural styles popular in the East such as Victorian, Queen Anne, and Greek Revival to be expressed.

There are some noteworthy public buildings such as The Scottish Rite Cathedral (1915 Henry C. Trost architect) and The Carnegie Free Library (circa 1900, Trost and Trost architect), which is now houses the Tucson Children’s Museum.
