Notes
Survey number HABS AZ-73-15
Building/structure dates: 1920 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 192 subsequent work
Significance: This Mission Revival style dwelling with enclosed front porch adds a distinctive flavor to this portion of South Convent Avenue. Built about twenty years later than the tow of Transitional Sonoran dwellings to the north of it, the structure displays the design standards in vogue during the 1910s and 1920s. Standing detached from both its neighbors, the main portion of the house is also set back farther from the street than any of the structures to the north; however, the enclosed front porch and a low adobe garden wall extending from it bring the house visually forward to the street.
