Tucson in Pima County, Arizona — The American Mountains (Southwest)
Habiendo sido en un tiempo un terreno baldío, esta area estaba dentro del presidio español original. Esta plaza probablemente fue nombrada durante el régimen mexicano (1821-1854), cuando los soldados marchaban ahí. Los caballos de silla de la tropa tenían sus establos en la parte norte, en seguida de la pared del presidio. Posteriormente, casas fueron construidas en ese lugar empezando en el año 1860.
