Valley Of The Moon A Tucson Historic Landmark
Valley Of The Moon Tucson Becomes First Historic Landmark Since 1995
Often overlooked by the media, Valley of the Moon has had a place in Tucson’s heritage since the early 1930’s. Its unique beginning and status in the history of Tucson was acknowledged by being designated a Tucson Historic Landmark in May 2015. The first property receiving such designation in over 20 years.
Valley of the moon was the vision of Mr. George Legler. Mr. Legler had moved to Tucson from Indiana in 1917. Soon after his arrival, he purchased the land that would become the Valley of the Moon Tucson AZ.
Perhaps due to some medical ailments, or just having inspiration. Mr. Legler felt there was a need to sustain the mind and soul as well as the physical body. Since the early 1920’s, Legler focused on the belief that “kindness to all is the golden key to happiness”.
Around 1923, Legler began building Valley Of The Moon. He was initially helped by Frank Thibault. For his effort, Legler gave Frank a spot on the property to build an adobe house for he and his wife.
