St. Augustine on Stone Street

In its earliest days, Tucson was known as San Augustin de Tucson. The St. Augustine Cathedral on Stone St. was built in 1897. The facade was added in 1928, inspired by the Cathedral of Querétaro, Mexico. With the exception of the facade and towers, the cathedral was demolished and rebuilt in the 1960's.
