HEREFORD On Sunday, Oct. 1, at 1:30 p.m, Friends of the Huachuca Mountains will introduce a little-known Spanish outpost along the San Pedro River. Perrie Barnes will present information about Presidio de Terrenate de Santa Cruz, a Spanish fort established in 1775 and abandoned in 1780, high on the bluffs above the San Pedro River. The site is a monument to three cultures: Spanish, Apache, and Sobiapuri each the embodiment of romance and legend.
For safety reasons occupancy in Carr House is limited to 49 people. In the past, the audiences for some popular programs have exceeded that number. Organizers advise guests to arrive early; additional visitors will not be admitted while the program is going on. Overflow guests will be invited to watch a livestream of the program at our outside picnic area.
Carr House is located on Carr Canyon Road, 2.1 miles from the intersection of Highway 92 at the Mesquite Tree Restaurant.
