Notes
Survey number HABS AZ-73-19
Building/structure dates: 1900 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 191 subsequent work
Significance: This flush-fronted Early Transitional adobe building is a contributing structure, along with its adjacent neighbors, to the S. Convent Ave. streetscape. Built in 1900 as a duplex by the family who lived in the house until 1921 and owned it until 1974, it is now the only commercial building on this section of Convent Avenue. The hipped roof with gablets reveals the Anglo influence in the home's construction.
