Supporting the Mission of HISTORY!

The City of Tucson, through a Certified Local Government Grant, has contracted with WestLand Engineering and Environmental Services, Inc. to conduct a city-wide survey of historic properties associated with Tucson’s African American community.

The first phase of the two-phase project is currently underway, and the intent of the first phase is to provide an inventory and database of Tucson’s surviving properties (buildings, structures, sites, and landscapes) built prior to 1978 that are associated with our African American Community. The inventory will serve as an informational and management tool to identify and preserve Tucson’s African American resources as well as provide a strategy to prioritize and identify areas for further study.

If you have information about Tucson’s African American historic properties or have any questions about WestLand’s data gathering and research, please feel free to reach out to either Jennifer Levstik at or Kathryn McKinney at
