Oldest European Structure in Arizona ~

Time again for some Tucson Trivia -- it is Tuesday, after all!  (:
The Mission St Xavier del Bac (aka "White Dove of the Desert") is the oldest intact European structure in Arizona. In 1790 when the Mission was founded, the land was still part of Spain. This structure is considered one of the finest examples of Spanish Colonial architecture in the United States.
