Inscription. E.N. Fish came to Arizona as an enterprising merchant in 1865. Three years later he built this adobe house which served as the family residence for the next half century. Fish developed many successful businesses and his wife Maria was prominent in public education. They contributed much to the growth and prosperity of early Tucson. Their home, one of the grandest of the day, was a social center for the community. It has been preserved by the Tucson Heritage Foundation and the Tucson Museum of Art.
