Photos: Rincon Heights Neighborhood
The neighborhood of about 2,000 residents is an eclectic mix – UA professors, college students, attorneys, artists and plumbers, to name a few.
Featuring about 600 homes, duplexes and apartment complexes, the neighborhood is bounded by Park Avenue to the west, Campbell Avenue to the east, Sixth Street to the north and Broadway to the south.
Rincon Heights is said to have some of the most diverse architecture in Tucson. The oldest home – an adobe hall-and-parlor with a gable roof – dates to 1877. Cottages built for people recuperating from tuberculosis dot the neighborhood.
