Visitors can now get a glimpse of the renovated Historic Fort Tuthill Quad.
Last week, officials announced the completion of the months-long renovation project, which aimed to upgrade the infrastructure at the historic site. The project included the construction of a major drainage system to minimize the risk of water damage to mess halls, as well as the installation of a public announcement system.
Years before it was an ideal place for Flagstaff families to visit, the quad served as the summer training facility for the Arizona National Guard (1929–1948). The quad at Fort Tuthill County Park is currently listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The project’s $4.7 million budget was funded by the Coconino Parks and Open Space sales tax approved by voters back in 2002.
Named after Lieutenant General Alexander M. Tuthill, the quad has several historic elements, including two concrete sections stamped with “USA WPA,” dating back to the Works Progress Administration era.
