Historic Old Adobe Mission Opens For 2nd Saturdays Free Downtown Cultural Trolley Tours
The historic Old Adobe Mission opens its doors for trolley tour participants to gather for a private docent talk and tour prior to the start of the trolley tours of downtown Scottsdale.
Built in 1933 by volunteer crews of parishioners, primarily from the Hispanic community, Our Lady of Perpetual Help Old Adobe Mission served as “a symbol of community togetherness, pride and hard work”. Restoration of the mission began in 2005. The 75th anniversary was celebrated on October 14th, 2008.
Attendees meet at the Old Adobe Mission. Underground parking is available across the street on the northwest corner of Brown and 2nd Street. Tour participants are treated to a talk on the history of the mission by a docent before they board the trolley. From there they will board the trolley and be provided with a guided tour of the Arts District, Hotel Valley Ho, SouthBridge and the Waterfront districts. Participants will learn about Scottsdale’s fascinating history, culture, arts and where to find extraordinary restaurants and shopping.
The tour will conclude at 12:30 p.m. and bring attendees back to the Old Town parking lot. Attendees will receive information on downtown Scottsdale restaurants and shopping as well as maps.
