Down the street on your right is the Tucson Museum of Art. Built in 1973, this museum features modern, western, and Pre-Columbian art. Five historic homes are on its grounds. The Fish-Stevens homes, the Romero house, and the Casa Córdova, all built in the 1860's, are classic Sonoran row-houses. In the Casa Córdova an elaborate Nacimiento, a Mexican Nativity Scene, is displayed; it is generally open from November to April. The Mission Revival style Corbett house was built in 1907 by one of Tucson's first lumber dealers. One block West, along Main Avenue are more examples of Territorial period homes. A pocket park, Centennial Park, celebrating the history of this part of Tucson, is located at the southwest corner of Main Ave. and Washington St.
