Sosa-Carrillo-Fremont House is one of Tucson's oldest adobe houses, built around 1880 and home of the Carrillo family for over 90 years. Located on the grounds of the Tucson Convention Center downtown, the house has been restored using period furniture of the 1880s, featuring exhibits of Tucson lifestyles in the 19th century. Admission is free, but reservations are required for walking tours, which are only offered on Saturdays.
I'm a great-granddaughter of Leopoldo Carrillo. My father and oldest brother were born in the Carrillo House. The Carrillo-Jacobs' family occupied it for nearly 100 years before Urban Renewal destroyed many lives and families. Most all of the Carrillo-Jacobs' family members who grew up there are gone. But, going back time and time again it recaptures your soul and the warmth of the house soothes your loss. With the closure of the Musuem in Feb./2009 it only closed one door. We pray that the Sosa Carrillo Fremont House doesn open one day. Like Lalo Guerrero sang "You can take the Barrio away from a person.But you can't take the person away from the Barrio". This House is so important, so vital to the culture and history of what once was a thriving downtown. So many descendants, so many generations of the Sosa and Jacobs'-Carrillo are still a large part of this community. We all family,neighbors,community, and especially the Barrio await for the day that door opens and we all are received with open arms. Just the way we were greeted each time we would visit. This is my invitation to you. When the Sosa Carrillo Fremont House reopens you must go visit. I will be there with open arms.
