In the early 1950’s artist Ted DeGrazia built a small adobe chapel in the foothills of Tucson’s Catalina Mountains. “It’s in honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe, which is the first Virgin of the American Continent… She is a dark Madonna, like the Indians. The Indians love her. Everybody who hears about her loves her and so do I. And so I built this little Mission for myself… It’s not Catholic it’s just a little chapel for anybody who wants to go in there…” - Ted DeGrazia

After this purchase Ted and Marion began to build their home. At this time there was no electricity, water, or services. All supplies that they needed had to be transported from Tucson. They cooked their food in an old wood-burning stove and took showers outside with water from a bucket. Happy Throwback Thursday! #NationalHistoricDistrict #DeGrazia #Artist #Ettore #Ted #GalleryInTheSun #ArtGallery #Gallery #Adobe #Architecture #Tucson #Arizona #AZ #Catalinas #Desert
