Notes
Survey number HABS AZ-73
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-20, FN-21).
Significance: It is a Hispanic working-class residential neighborhood with a scattering of corner grocery stores and small commercial establishments. The area covers approximately 12 blocks located immediately south of Tucson's downtown business district. Buildings range in age from 50 to 100 years, most of them designed and built by the original property owner. Sonoran-style flush-fronted, contiguous adobe rowhouses predominate, but transitional Sonoran structures incorporating Anglo design elements, some unembellished Victorians, and a handful of simple Spanish Colonial and Mission Revival style buildings demonstrate the neighborhood's ability to meet changing design standards and concepts of site utilization.
