Camp StreetIn 1862, Union soldiers took possession of a former Confederate camp located in what is now Armory Park neighborhood. The camp, originally named Military Plaza, was reactivated in 1866 as Camp Lowell. During its occupation, soldiers traveled between the camp and the village of Tucson using a path called Camp Street. Today, remnants of the eastern half of the alignment follow modern day Broadway Boulevard.
