The Stevens-Duffield House - The original owner tried to shoot his wife but she was saved by the heavy silver comb she wore in her hair. http://www.tucsonmuseumofart.org/block/stevens-duffield-house.php
The Corbett House - The owners of this Mission-style home (built in 1907) manufactured gin in their attic during Prohibition. http://www.tucsonmuseumofart.org/block/j-knox-corbett-house.php
More houses and more stories as we continue tomorrow!
Next stop: Walk north on Main Street and turn right at Washington.
I went to the Museum of Art website and found a treasure trove of information! I didn't know the Stevens-Duffield house story, but I remember going to the Corbett House during Christmas when it is lavishly decorated. Thanks again for this tour!ReplyDelete
