Tubac state park honors 150-year-old newspaper

Citizen Staff Writer



Tubac Presidio State Historic Park will honor The Arizonian, a 150-year-old newspaper that still is being printed on the original hand press at the park.

The event, “Print Journalism Celebrated Since 1859″, will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 7 in the park’s Historic Schoolhouse.

Speakers will talk about the Arizona Newspaper Project to digitize newspapers in the state from 1880 to 1922 and the restoration of the Washington Hand Press.

For more information, call Ellen Bilbrey at 602-542-1996 or 602-228-8518.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
