La Reunion El Fuerte

This program is centered around a self-guided walking tour of 19 historic sites and homes of El Fuerte village in the Fort Lowell Historic District. Tour booklets are available to guide visitors through the turn-of-the century Hispanic neighborhood, which includes prehistoric HoHoKam ruins. The event also serves as a reunion of former El Fuerte residents. Sponsored by the Fort Lowell Museum and the Old Fort Lowell Neighborhood Association, the program includes a Mariachi Mass at the San Pedro Chapel, a social hour, and a military parade revue and band music from the 4th Cavalry of Fort Huachuca.

The project is documented with a six-page report, thirteen 8 x 10 color photographs, a booklet, The People of Fort Lowell, a video entitled "South of the Rillito, West of the Pantano," a booklet, La Reunión Historic Sites, a chronology of events of the Old Fort Lowell neighborhood, and fliers.
