It’s a historic destination in itself with its distinctive architecture and alluring patios. The Griffin family built the plaza in the 1950s, modeled on the sketch of Tubac’s original presidio (Spanish fort) by author J. Ross Browne, who visited in the mid-1850s. It has served as a post office and restaurant before eventually becoming a haven for painters, sculptors, and other artists. Its location across the street and north of the Presidio State Historic Park is also the entry to Old Town Tubac.
