The Presidio Museum comes alive allowing visitors to get a feel for life in the Presidio during the late 18th-century New Spain Period and the 19th-century Territorial Period. This month’s Living History will take a look at crime and death in Arizona from New Spain to Statehood. Visitors will be invited to “Solve the Murder Mystery Using History” by finding clues around the Presidio and from various re-enactor demonstrations. Activities will also include learning about early coroner practices and customs to honor the dead.
