Protection of the Saguaro forests started in 1933. Herbert Hoover protected a small land area near Tuscon, AZ as a National Monument. After a decades long struggle for environmental protection and substantive developments made by the CCC, the area was finally protected as a National Park under the presidency of Bill Clinton.
Tumacácori was established as a Jesuit mission and was a site of key military and political battles. It lasted from 1691-1848, becoming a National Historical Park 142 years after its abandonment.

It became a game preserve under President Theordore Roosevelt in 1906, and after a land addition, it became a National Monument in 1908.
