The Heritage Alliance is excited to be at a new location. Our new office is in the historic Charles O. Brown house, at 40 W. Broadway in downtown Tucson.
The Historic Site plaque on the building reads:
"A small adobe house stood on the south side of this lot when it was purchased by Charlie Brown in 1868. Brown, a pre-Civil War settler and prominent citizen, built the Congress Hall Saloon, the town's most popular gaming place and meeting hall. The house was expanded between 1876 and 1888, until it covered three sides of a square. It represents a classic blending of Mexican building designs and materials, with American Victorian trim. The property was given to the Arizona Historical Society by Miss Elizabeth Congdon. It is on the National Register of Historic Places."
Other tenants in the Brown House include the Arizona Historical Society, Legacy Bookstore, and Ben’s Bells, and a retail store will be coming soon. Stay tuned for details about our office-warming celebration to learn what we’ve been working on to connect people to the cultural, historic, and natural treasures of the Santa Cruz Valley. Be sure to sign up for our e-news so you get an invitation to the party.
