The name Tucson originated from the Spanish interpretation of the O’odham Indian name for the settlement area, Cuk Ṣon, meaning “spring at the foot of a black mountain.” Luxurious black and red leather, native-influenced woven fabrics and artifacts subtly reinforce our diverse southwestern history. This room is cozy and inviting, with views of the Santa Catalina mountains beyond the front lawn and the pool. Both the pristine 1950’s tile in black and maroon and the wood-beamed shower ceiling create a vintage one-of-a-kind experience.
Historical Notes ~ Tucson was probably first visited by Paleo-Indians, known to have been in southern Arizona about 12,000 years ago. Recent archaeological excavations near the Santa Cruz River have located a village site dating from 4,000 years ago. The floodplain of the Santa Cruz River was extensively farmed during the Early Agricultural period, circa 1200 BC to AD 150. These people constructed irrigation canals and grew corn, beans, and other crops while gathering wild plants and hunting animals. The Early Ceramic period occupation of Tucson saw the first extensive use of pottery vessels for cooking and storage. The groups designated by archaeologists as the Hohokam lived in the area from AD 600 to 1450 and are known for their red-on-brown pottery.
