Tovrea Castle Tour

Who doesn't want to see this? An imposing sight from all around Phoenix and it is closed to the public. What a shame.

Former Mayor and historic preservationist John Driggs is working tirelessly to have it opened and enjoyed. The Historical League got a very up close and personal look at the amazing construction and cactus gardens. We loved it. A sold out tour, we split into three groups. John Jacquemart, an extremely knowledgeable person (and author) of historic Phoenix, led my group. The pictures tell it all.
