Notes
Survey number HABS AZ-73-31
Building/structure dates: 1890 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 182 subsequent work
Significance: The building, 486 S. Meyer Ave., located at the corner of S. Meyer Avenue and W. Kennedy Street, has been a grocery store since the 1910s. Originally constructed as an adobe dwelling, it was remodeled and faced with brick in the 1930s and/or 1940s. The brick remodeling displays a definite Anglo influence, as does the addition of the large store windows. The building is a distinctive corner anchor for the row of two apartment blocks that adjoin it, beginning with #488 and extending to #498.
