Friends of Tucson’s Birthplace and Rio Nuevo have reconstructed the 4.7-acre site that was once part of the 1973 San Agustín Mission by adding a new education center, a demonstration kitchen, a ramada, and restrooms with flush toilets. Other improvements include an adobe perimeter wall, utility line upgrades, irrigation, and signage. The project cost approximately $1.1 million and was completed fully in February of 2017.
