Survey number HABS AZ-73-5

Significance: This large corner structure housed both a grocery store and living quarters for the Bustamante family, owners of a large ranch south of San Xavier Mission. The large corner openings are evidences of the commercial nature of the structure, while the rest of the building (including 186 West Kennedy (part of the original South Meyer Ave. house) and 168 1/2 West Kennedy (an apartment addition built at a later date)) maintains a residential aspect. The setback, recessed openings, and adobe construction exhibit Sonoran characteristics; the hipped roof and gabled dormer vent show Anglo influence.
