Notes
Survey number HABS AZ-73-53
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-27).
Building/structure dates: 1900 initial construction
Significance: This pre-1900 building, of unknown builder, is an example of a Sonoran style row house typical of those found in the Barrio Libre. Built of adobe, set flush with the front property line, and with a gable now covering the original mud roof, the structure was probably constructed as a single-family dwelling. It was converted to apartments and underwent three additions to the rear to create more dwelling units. Such conversions and additions are common to the Barrio.
