One of the most unique and historic homes in Tucson. Listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. Designed by Henry C Trost and built of solid Redwood and Maple by the master craftsmen of Tucson's Ronstadt Family in the summer of 1899.

The San Pedro River Valley, home to the Casa, is also an incredible naturalist haven featuring many birds that follow the riparian corridor as it winds its way North from Mexico. The Mule Mountains around Bisbee and the SulphurSprings Valley beyond also afford birders great opprotunities to experience some of the best birdwatching in the nation. Just a bit further are the Chirachaua Montains with the Chirachaua National Monument which is a "must see" adventure. Great restaurants in the area offer all styles of food and beverages.
