Inscription. Named Calle de las Milpas ("Road Which Leads to the Corn Fields") during Tucson’s Spanish period; the street linked the presidio with adjacent agricultural fields. Renamed Cemetery Street in the mid-1800s, the street was the main thoroughfare between downtown and the local military cemetery. By 1875 the cemetery was moved and the street was renamed Alameda Street ("Tree-Lined Street").
