The Tucson Corral of the Westerners was established as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization for charitable and educational purposes. The first meeting in 1953, started with the goal of sharing cultural and historical facts about the American West which has been carried on for all of our 65 years of existence. We have endeavored to sustain an educational and literary program dedicated to the study, preservation and recording of historical events.

Do you like Western History? We invite you to consider who we are and what we do and come to a meeting! And if you enjoyed the experience, join The Tucson Corral of the Westerners.

To further the Tucson Corrals goals, the Corral’s historical preservation programs expanded  in 1960 with the publication of our periodical, “The Smoke Signal”. This internationally recognized magazine, offers both professors and history buffs a place to present scholarship about the history of our Southwest region. To date we have featured over 100 historical articles about subjects that range from our Spanish colonial beginnings to our present day historical experiences.

The Tucson Corral is guided by an elected by membership, which includes the officers in our “Yearly Posse”, our “Past Sheriff’s Posse members” and additional committees that are established to accomplish the mission of the Corral.
