La Casa Cordova, now a part of
the Tucson Museum of Art, may be the oldest surviving building
in Tucson. The one-story adobe house is of typical Mexican town
house design with a flat roof, central brick courtyard and doors
opening directly on to the street. Possibly built as early as
1848, La Casa Cordova dates from the city's Mexican period and
is Tucson's oldest residence.
