Notes
Survey number HABS AZ-73-22
Building/structure dates: 1900 initial construction
Significance: This hip-roofed Anglo-Territorial style dwelling is unique in that it is constructed of stone. Built in 1906-1907, it is more recent than the other buildings on the block, and is the only residence on Kennedy St. between Meyer Avenue and Convent Avenue that is set back from the street. The dwelling is also one of the first in Tucson that was built as a duplex from the beginning, rather than being modified later. (The street number serves both sides of the house, stemming from an earlier day when a now-demolished house next door was numbered 149). The degree of setback, front-porch extension, and hip-roof display show none of the elements of the traditional adobe Sonoran dwellings found in the Barrio.
