Significance: The Dining Hall is the oldest surviving major structure on the site of the Phoenix Indian School. In addition, not only was it the first structure at the School to employ Mission Revival style, it was also the first to do so in Phoenix, and in Arizona; it may well have been the first permanent institutional building in the U.S. in that style, which gave it unusual importance for architectural history. At the same time the stylistic choice was ideologically poignant, recalling on one hand the early history of European colonization in the West, and on the other pointing up the new "mission" embodied in the Indian School itself.
