Tucson in Pima County, Arizona — The American Mountains (Southwest)
Presidio Wall & Pithouse
Muralla Presidial y Casa-en-Hoyo
Este marcador señala la esquina noreste de la muralla de adobe que rodeaba el real presidio español de San Agustín del Tucsón. Uno de los cuatro baluartes de vigilancia y defensa del presidio estaba aquí. Arqueólogos, escarbando aquí, descubrieron bajo la muralla una vivienda prehistórica de un pueblo de indios Hóhokam que existía aquí c. A.D. 800. Esta casa-en-hoyo, así llamada por su piso bajo nivel de tierra, es evidencia que Tucsón es una de la ciudades más antiguamente y continuamente pobladas de Norte América.
