Roosevelt Neighborhood Walking Tour- Historic Architecture of Downtown Phoenix

April 1 (Arizona)

Bob Graham, a local Phoenix architect with expertise in historic preservation, will be leading a walking tour of the historic Roosevelt Neighborhood in downtown Phoenix. Roosevelt is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and features a wide variety of historic commercial and residential structures. This neighborhood encapsulates the growth and development of Phoenix in the late 19th to early 20th century. Roosevelt developed into a streetcar suburb and was an early hub for the growing tourist industry in Phoenix. The neighborhood preserves fine examples of Craftsman bungalows and Period Revival houses, as well as early examples of city shopping centers. The walking tour will explore the stories of the people who built this storied community and the diverse architectural traditions preserved to this day. 

The trip is limited to 20 people, and you must be an AAHS member to participate. To sign up, email aahs1916@gmail.com.
