A Tucson Neighborhood Named after Dessert!
This home, circa 1800's, is in the historic Pie Allen neighborhood. I was walking near 4th Avenue and this house was on Hoff Avenue near 8th. The area is named after John "Pie" Allen, a man who was famous for his delicious dried apple pies (fresh fruit was not in supply year round). He was also a regional entrepreneur and ran trading posts and post offices from Bisbee to Wickenburg.
