TCC Historic District Recognized in National Register

The Tucson Community Center Historic District downtown was listed in the National Register of Historic Places last week. The district consists of the landscape surrounding the TCC Arena, Music Hall and Leo Rich Theater; the walkway between the hotel and La Placita Village; and Veinte de Agosto Park. The Convention Center and arena are in the southern end of the district.

The district was designed in stages by Modernist landscape architect Garrett Eckbo (1910-2000) in 1971, 1973, and 1974.

The volunteer group TCC Today is advocating for restoration of the district. The video below explains the group's efforts.
