Tumacacori, Arizona - The Mission San Jose de Tumacacori was established in January 1691 by Jesuit Father Eusebio Francisco Kino. The mission is located on 310 acres at the town of Tumacacori, Arizona, 50 miles south of the City of Tucson, Arizona, and 18 miles north of the international border with Mexico at Nogales, Arizona/Sonora. The mission is part of the Tumacacori National Historical Park. According to experts on the subject, it is probable that the name "Tumacacori" is derived from two O'odham words, "chu-uma" and "kakul," which refer to a flat, rocky place. Father Eusebio Kino established this mission in January 1691, which makes it the oldest mission site in Arizona. Photo by Eduardo Barraza © 2011
