Archeological clearance at Stone and Speedway

The City is doing archeological clearance for an RTA-funded bus pullout in the Speedway and Stone area. The RTA improvements go from Drachman to 1st Street. They are testing the whole city parcel. As you know, this area was a cemetary so it will be interesting to see what they find.

Jonathan Mabry, the City's Historic Preservation Officer, says the Court Street Cemetary served Tucson residents between 1875 and 1904. If you haven't seen it, here is an old Tucson Weekly article about it.
