Notes
Survey number HABS AZ-73-52
Building/structure dates: 1900 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 182 subsequent work
Significance: The last in a row of five contiguous Early Transitional Sonoran adobe row houses, this duplex exhibits the unique method of Barrio property division. Now owned by two separate persons, the northern half of the structure has been abandoned and allowed to deteriorate (#471), while the southern half has been replastered and maintained (#473). Set flush with the street and contiguously with its northern neighbor (479-481 S. Convent Ave.) the building reinforces the planar qualities of the South Convent Avenue street scape.
