Notes
Survey number HABS AZ-73-9
Building/structure dates: 1900 initial construction
Significance: Standing in an isolated situation, this adobe duplex is connected to its northern neighbor (473 Convent Ave., (AZ-73-52)) by an archway and gate. The two structures were probably joined when the present owner purchased 479-481 and half of the building next door in 1939. Although this duplex exhibits the Anglo influence of a hipped roof, gabled dormer vent, and isolated site location, it is built of the traditional adobe and set flush with the street, lending continuity to the planar qualities of the South Convent Avenue street facade.
