For all the advice given, we managed to get down to Tucson for a few days and spent most of one morning at Agua Caliente. I recognized the ranch house right away.

Talked to one of the volunteer guides, who was surprised I knew where the pool used to be (they had filled it in a few years back).

He took us on a tour of the ranch house, I had forgotten what a wonderful kitchen it had (like 3 kitchens in 1) -- still basically the same as it was 40 years ago.

I had forgotten how beautiful it was, Tucson is so lucky to have preserved it as a park.

That sounds interesting. I always thought i've been there but there is no ghosthouse in my memories. In fact I was 3yr old kid and maybe just don't remember.

It's funny this resurfaced as after thirty years plus of living in Tucson, I only just visited Agua Caliente Park this past weekend. I wasn't even too sure I was really aware of it's existance until this thread.

It's a marvelous park and my husband, myself and our two dogs traipsed all round and spent a few lovely hours there. We'll know next time to bring a picnic along to enjoy as well. Took a quick tour through the house (while the other stayed outside with the pups) and could have spent a lot longer in it learning more history of the place. If you're a birder or know someone who is, there's a wonderful little nook store run by the Audobon Society in the house. All kinds of wonderful bird stuff.
