Roosevelt Historic District

Roosevelt Historic District – is roughly bounded by Portland and Fillmore Streets, Central and 7th Avenues. Roosevelt is one of Phoenix’s original neighborhoods, with large homes built for the elite dating back to the turn of the century. Architecturally the Roosevelt neighborhood has some of the finest examples of early twentieth century residential architecture in Phoenix. The most common building type is the California Bungalow, which dominates most of the district. Among these relatively plain homes are also found many finely detailed Craftsman Bungalows and Period Revival houses. The Craftsman movement, a popular building philosophy of the early twentieth century, used natural and rustic materials. It stressed comfort, utility and convenience as well as high quality workmanship in design and construction. So-called Craftsman Bungalows were usually covered with natural wood shingles and had foundations, porch columns and chimneys of stone, rough-faced brick or textured concrete. Nearby you will find the Roosevelt Row Arts District, a creative district in the urban core of downtown Phoenix that is nationally known for its arts and cultural events, award-winning restaurants, galleries, boutiques and live music. call 480-229-8483
