Tucson in Pima County, Arizona — The American Mountains (Southwest)
Leonardo Romero House
Casa Leonardo Romero
El primer residente de que sabemos, Leonardo Romero, vivía en esta casa en 1868. Aunque la fecha de construcción no se sabe, la pared al lado de la calle Washington coincide con el muro del presidio, terminado en 1783. Romero era carpintero y su taller estaba al lado de la calle Meyer. Su trabajo era notable en la Catedral de San Agustín, el convento de monjas de San José, y la misión de San Xavier. Con alteraciones la casa ha servido de residencia, tienda de abarrotes, oficina, restaurán, gasolinera, laboratorio de fotos, museo de arte, y aulas escolares.
Erected 1984 by Tucson-Pima County Historical Commission and Arizona Historical Society
